Emily Caruso Gantner, DMD

“Effort is like toothpaste, you can always squeeze out just a little bit more.”

My Mission

"Your smile is one of the first things people see when they look at you and I want everyone that walks through the doors to leave more confidenta than they came in. I strive to make sure that everyone, no matter what their background or beliefs, feels like they are welcome, seen, and respected in our office. My greatest hope is that people who previously haven't felt comfortable with their smile or coming into a dental office feels like they have found their home with us."
