Clair Poff, DDS

I feel I am uniquely blessed because I get to work with both adults and children. It is always gratifying to make children smile. Unfortunately, many kids have a fear of the dentist at a very young age. I love to show kids that coming to the dentist can be fun! There is nothing like gaining the trust of a child and being part of a positive dental experience. When it comes to adults, often times they bring some of the same fears with them! I love making people feel comfortable and helping them understand that together, we both want the best for them.

Meeting people from all walks of life makes each day fun and exciting. I love hearing people’s stories. Unfortunately, I am often guilty of asking questions while working on someone’s mouth! But I just love getting to know people and finding out about their lives. We all have so much to learn from each other.
