Robert Funk, DDS
I consider it an honor and privilege to be able to have a positive impact on so many people’s lives. For the past 21 years, I have built some amazing relationships while creating healthy, beautiful smiles. I enjoy helping change people’s attitude towards dentistry and show them that it can actually be an enjoyable experience. Our office provides a very personal touch and makes each person’s experience special. We love to have fun and celebrate their success.
