Profile: Hi, my name is Beth Hay and I have worked at Grandview Dental Care since 1998.

Sugar-free carbonated drinks and acidic beverages, such as lemonade, are often considered safer for teeth than sugared … Continue reading

The fees we charge are based on the quality service and care that we provide. But like any purchase, the choice … Continue reading
