Our Friendly Warrenton, VA Dental Team Will Take Good Care of YouDoctor Jim Jelinek on the staff and atmosphere of the practice Read Transcript
The atmosphere of the office and staff, I would equate it to MASH, BJ and Honeycut and those guys. They kind of banter back and forth, and we do that, but we're also serious. When things get—in treatment with a patient, we're paying attention, not joking around with that, but it's a very pleasant environment, comfortable environment to work in.
Members of our dental team describe both their coworkers and their patients as being like family. Visit our Warrenton, VA dentist office to experience this warm and caring atmosphere for yourself.
