Meet Dr. Kickliter

I am dedicated to making a difference for patients and their dental health through education, encouragement, and the best that dental technology has to offer. Developing relationships with my patients provides me with new opportunities to learn from those around me, while building their trust and confidence in the services my team and I offer. With an emphasis on prevention and education, I focus on education and providing unbiased information so patients can make the best decisions for their dental care.

At the end of the day, my goal is to provide patients with confident smiles and self-assurance in a relaxing environment so that coming to the dentist is a thoroughly positive experience.
