At Fairway Dental, we think working as a team is extremely important to make sure you receive the treatment you need and that your visit is comfortable and relaxing.
Our team is also part of a larger dental team. We enjoy working with general dentists and other specialists to improve your appearance and quality of life. Why? Dr. Pérez explains, “When a patient has regained the confidence and courage to face the world, seeing them gives me special satisfaction.”
Allow us to introduce ourselves below. If you have further questions about our team, call us at 214-731-0558 for more information.
