Our Dental Philosphy

Small-Town Care

You won’t find another dental practice that cares more about the Le Center community than we do! Our passion for our community is easily seen in the patient-focused, smalltown care we provide inside our practice doors. As your trusted hometown dentist, we promise to always keep your best interests in mind.

Personal Relationships

Some dental offices feel like an assembly line — in and out, with no personal care. That is not our philosophy. We take the time to get to know each patient personally. We will greet you by name and treat you like family because to us, you are! We look forward to building a lasting relationship with you through the years.

Friendly Team

One thing patients love about our practice is our friendly and caring team. Some of us have been serving Le Sueur County for more than 30 years and will be familiar faces to you when you come through our doors! Throughout your visit, we will be attentive and helpful in every way. We work hard to create a welcoming and comfortable environment so you can feel right at home.

Affordable Treatments

We believe in always doing what’s best for you in terms of treatment, and we believe the same in finance. We offer dental care to the community at a reasonable price and will always be open and up-front about treatment and payment options. You will find that we work hard to provide the treatment you need at a price you can afford.

Exceptional Dentistry

Dr. Stavish never settles for less than her best when it comes to your oral health care. In every service she delivers, from general and cosmetic dentistry to more complex restorative procedures, she works with detailed accuracy and a gentle touch. Beyond that, Dr. Stavish utilizes modern dental technologies, including digital x-rays and intraoral cameras, to deliver the highest quality of care possible. Having a strong oral health foundation is key to excellence in dentistry. Optimal oral and overall health are best maintained through regular hygiene visits. Let us help you stay on the pathway to lasting health and wellness.

Clear Communication

Our constant goal is to build an open, trusted relationship with our patients, and we know that clear communication is key in making that possible. We want you to have the knowledge to choose the treatment right for you. We take the time to explain your treatment options and answer your questions. We want you to feel confident in your dental decisions.
