About Your Dentist

Marcia Irving-Ray, DDS

"Be the reason someone smiles today."

My Mission

"So many people are afraid of the dentist, and some don't even remember why they avoid the denoting… I try to change patients' minds and help them see that going to the dentist can be a pleasant experience! My mission in dentistry is to help patients realize that good overall health includes good oral health. We must educate our patients around proper oral health maintenance and how the oral cavity can be a barometer for some systemic health problems."
