Dr. William Gordon
Dr. William Gordon’s practice philosophy is to treat each patient as if they were a member of his own family in the dental chair. It is his belief that each appointment be treated as an opportunity to make a positive, upbeat contribution to his patient’s day because it is not only the teeth but the whole person who is being treated. Dr. Gordon looks forward to coming to the office each day and seeing the joy he brings to his patients as their dental health improves and their self-esteem grows through improved dental and facial appearance. There is not another job in the world that he would rather do!
