Providing Patients with Personal Attention..
"No one should be afraid to go to the dentist. My team and I work hard to give every patient a relaxing, comfortable experience. A healthy mouth and an attractive smile are fundamental to overall health, happiness, and confidence. We want to help our patients enjoy the many benefits of a lifetime of healthy smiles."
Dr. Kratser is an FAGD dentist.
What does that mean for you and your family?
FAGD stands for Fellow of the Academy of General Dentistry. Earning Fellowship takes dedication to dental continuing education (CE) beyond graduation. Only about 6 percent of general dentists in the U.S. and Canada are AGD Fellows. When you see a dentist with FAGD after their name, you can rest assured they care about knowing the latest techniques and best practices in dentistry. AGD Fellows practice these techniques in a classroom setting multiple times a year.
To become an AGD Fellow, a dentist must:
- Complete over 500 credit hours of CE.
- Earn 350 of those 500 credits in live courses.
- Pass an exam equal in difficulty to board certification exams.
"Dentistry is the art of being able to restore oral health while positively impacting lives for a living."
"I am committed to helping people with their dental needs so they can enjoy the many benefits of a healthy, beautiful smile. My goal is to provide high quality, patient-centered care that produces healthy and confident smiles. I enjoy building relationships with my patients because I am certain that truly exceptional dentistry is only possible with open communication in a friendly environment."
