“I enjoy knowing that I am able to have such a meaningful impact on my patients’ lives. It’s important for me to build a friendship with my patients so that they feel comfortable with the care they receive. Being a dentist gives me the opportunity to interact with so many different people, and it is immensely rewarding to see the changes in my patients’ appearance, self-esteem, and overall health of their smile.” – Dr. Prigmore
Dr. James Prigmore’s professional and ethical standards dictate that only necessary treatment is done with the precision that assures long-term dental health. It is his intent to prevent the need for future treatment by educating and motivating his patients in dental hygiene and proper diet. Treating his patients as they would want to be treated, and going that extra mile to assure satisfaction, has always been his credo.
