Quality Care for My Patients’ Smiles
For me, there is little more precious than the life of a child. I love the enthusiasm, magic, and innocence of childhood, and the genuine trust a child places in my hands. On a daily basis, my profession allows me to look at the world from a child’s eye. It is a privilege for me to work with a child, over the years, and have a positive influence on their life’s journey.
I find great joy in being part of a child’s life and treasure their confidences. I want my patients to think of me fondly, both now and when they look back at their childhood dental experiences.
I’m passionate about providing quality care in an amazing environment where children are encouraged to thrive. I have never wavered from my commitment to do the right thing by each child and always have their best interests at heart. — Dr. Lori Lee Santos, Certified Specialist in Pediatric Dentistry
