From Dr. Sands: 

“I decided to join Lane and Associates because I wanted a group of doctors surrounding me that shared the same mindset of caring for the patient first without nickel and diming patients. My ultimate goal is to provide the full-scope of optimal dental care, ensure that patients never settle for average treatment, and reach as many patients as I can in my short lifetime.  

 I approach dentistry the same way I approach different projects, never settling for “good enough” and always giving 110%. I believe it is vital to provide each patient with their own personal health care plan and I am constantly training to stay as up-to-date as possible in the dental field to ensure that my patients never settle for average care.”
