Choose the Right Dentist 

In the grand scheme of healthcare providers, a dentist is someone you will come to know well. With visits twice a year, at least, sometimes more, you will want to choose the right dentist. Someone who cares about you as a person, who cares well for your oral health, and who has what you need in terms of accepting your dental insurance and technology. Dentists specialize in the prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of the mouth, including the teeth and gums – this is important stuff and should be handled by well-trained and experienced providers. Allison Hurlbut, DDS, and Kelsey Sasse, DDS, of Lincoln, NE are two dentists who can provide this type of care for you and your family.
