Meet The Dr. Poz Team
The Dr. Poz team is an outstanding group of dedicated dental professionals with long experience in dental health and they have worked alongside Dr. Poz and Dr. Hein for a considerable length of time.
This means you see the same faces each time you come in and everyone on the team knows you – not just as another patient or as a name on a chart, but they know and care about you – the person. You will benefit from the continuity of care that is only possible when you are treated by the same people over time.
