Our Practice

Follow Us/Patient Reviews: 

Dr Persons attended dental school at The Oregon Health Sciences University in Portland, Oregon.  He graduated in 1984. He worked in several office for the first 2 years. In 1986 he started his own practice on 43rd Ave and Peoria, in Glendale, Arizona. It was located in a new strip center, sandwiched between a pizza place and a hair salon.  We handed out fliers in the neighborhood and mailed out other fliers to get a start.  His wife Valorie did the front office duties as well as assisting Dr Persons.  The back room was arranged with toys and a television, to occupy the 2 children at the time. A lot of our patients are still coming to the office and often remind us of those days with fond memories of being with us for so long.  We have been at this location, on 51st Ave south of Olive, in Glendale, now for over 30 years and one of  those children in the back room, at the other location has grown up and has been our receptionist, dental assistant and now is our hygienist.  It is truly a "family practice".

We enjoy the patients we have had since opening our doors over 30 years ago and the new ones we have gained along the way.  Dr Persons loves his work and his patients. He loves to visit with them and get to know them on a personal basis.

We look forward to meeting you, and welcoming you in as a  new patient into our Family oriented practice.

We have some wonderful employees that have been working here for years and they also love and know the patients. Our new hygienist Danielle, is family oriented also. She has done some temping for us before and is now working on Wednesday and Friday. 

We are a dental practice devoted to restoring and enhancing the natural beauty of your smile using conservative, state-of-the-art procedures that will result in beautiful, long lasting smiles!

High Standards

A standard of excellence in personalized dental care enables us to provide the quality dental services our patients want. Timing is everything.  We try to help you get treatment before an emergency occurs, but if it does, our phone line allows a way to send an emergency message to him, and get a return phone call back.

Education & Prevention

As a practice, we are true believers that preventative care and education are the keys to optimal dental health. That’s why we focus on thorough exams – checking the overall health of your teeth and gums, performing oral cancer exams, and taking x-rays when on a regular basis.  We also know that routine cleanings, flossing, sealants, and fluoride are all helpful in preventing dental disease.  Not only are we focused on the beauty of your smile, we’re also concerned about your health.  A review of your medical history can help us stay informed of your overall health, any new medications, and any illnesses that may impact your dental health.

Uncompromising Safety

Infection control in our office is also very important to us.  To protect our patients and ourselves, we strictly maintain sterilization and cross contamination processes using standards recommended by the American Dental Association (ADA), the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), and the Center for Disease Control (CDC).

As your dental health professionals, we want you to be confident knowing that we are a team of highly trained and skilled clinicians.  We pride ourselves in providing the care you need to keep your smile healthy.  To give you the best possible service and results, we are committed to continual education and learning.  We attend dental lectures, meetings, and dental conventions to stay informed of new techniques, the latest products, and the newest equipment that a modern dental office can utilize to provide state-of-the-art dental care.  Also, being members of various professional dental associations helps us to stay abreast of the changes and recommendations for our profession.
