Our Core Values and Mission

Creating happy smiles

We are a values-driven practice. Our values reflect the thinking of our Founding Principal – Keith Chiang. Keith is passionate about creating healthy smiles on the faces of patients and members of the practice.

The practice has six shared core values “SMILES” – Service, Motivation, Integrity, Leadership, Empathy and Standards. We hold ourselves accountable for upholding these values. They guide our actions, decision making, recruitment, professional development and interactions with each other and our patients.
