Jon D. Mehr, DDS
I love being able to take care of people. I’ve learned from my mother, a nurse of 48 years, that there is a lot more to patient care than just completing a procedure. I love learning about our patients’ life experiences, where they have lived, family traditions, what they have done, and what they are going to do.
I believe one of the best aspects of dentistry is the preventative care we provide. If we are able to intercept potential problems early, it can make a huge impact for our patients later in their lives.
