The Gordon Pediatric Dental team is a very talented and special group of human beings. They give of themselves to always create a positive experience for each child and family, and do so thoughtfully, kindly, and with great empathy. I respect each team member as a person and am constantly in awe at their ability to get things done, individually and as a group.
Our team, and our doctors, are united in our dedication to provide compassionate, comprehensive, and individual care to each child. We really listen, pride ourselves on communication, and strive to build a strong partnership with the parent, child, dentist, and team.
At our practice, every child is treasured for the wonderfully unique and dynamic person they are: we are committed to welcoming each with warmth, and caring for them as family!
~ Dr. Marsha Gordon

OR Coordinator/Administrative Staff
