Dental Health Associates Lakewood WA
“I decided to pursue dentistry because in a fundamental way, dentists are healers. Not only can they alleviate the worst kind of pain, but they can also create a beautiful smile, which in turn restores confidence and self-esteem. I am proud to be working in a profession that allows me to meet and help so many people. Those I have treated are more than just great patients; they are also great friends.” — Dr. David Stevens
