About Your Dentist

Michelle Prieto, DMD

Taking care of your oral health is an investment in your overall health. Whether dentistry has been a consistent part of your life or a distant friend, I applaud my patients for taking a step toward a healthier mouth and a healthier body.

My Mission

My mission in dentistry is to be present in each day, in each appointment, and in each experience. I hope to educate my patients and instill in them the confidence to keep coming back! I believe in professional growth and the importance of continuing to educate myself to provide the best patient experience. Working as a team to create an environment to treatment plan that addresses each individuals needs is my priority!
