With Dr. Paul Dougherty and Dr. Scott Szotko

Why should you choose Dougherty Dental?

We firmly stand by our practice’s philosophy. When you visit our office, we want you to feel as though you are not at the dentist at all. Your comfort and security are our utmost priority, and “we want you leaving our practice feeling as good as, or better than, when you walked in.” – Dr. Paul Dougherty. You are not a patient. You are a part of our dental family! You can always trust we will treat you fairly and will take the time to remember what is important to you. When it comes to your treatment, Drs. Dougherty and Szotko will treat you like they would treat their own family and friends. True preventive, restorative care you can trust.
