From Dr. Vigneault:

I have chosen the “small practice” concept. I like knowing each patient by name. Taking care of you on a one to one basis, like you’ve never experienced before.

I am proud to have served patients in our community. Through continuing education and state-of-the-art equipment, my staff and I are able to offer you and your family the high level of care you’re looking for. We will give you a warm welcome and our ongoing commitment to your dental health.
