Nurturing the Doctor-Patient Relationship

  • Dr.
    Brett Hester

    Dr. Hester feels that he made the most rewarding decision in his career when he decided to practice in his hometown. Because his father is a local orthodontist, he grew up witnessing the impact that strong doctor-patient relationships can have on a community. In addition to offering a full spectrum of general, restorative, and cosmetic dental care, Dr. Hester works with local non-profits and charitable organizations, and also provides free dental treatment to those in need through the Partnership Dental Clinic.
