As a pediatric dentist Dr. Michael Quigley has a unique opportunity to impact the lives of children. Dental phobias typically manifest early in life and are usually the result of a difficult/traumatic experience in the dental chair. The work done by Dr. Quigley influences the child’s perception of the dentist for years to come and can be a huge determining factor in whether that person will seek dental care as an adult.
A unique challenge that Dr. Quigley often faces is the apprehensive patient, but it is a challenge that he finds to be exceptionally rewarding. He takes pride in the fact that the majority of his patients genuinely enjoy coming to the dentist due to the positive experiences he’s created for them.
Dr. Quigley has a strong desire to build strong, trusting relationships with the families in our community, and he hopes to create that level of relationship with you and your child.
