Starting in February 2003 and continuing to present, she feels very fortunate to have the ability to treat Dr. JP’s patients on a regular schedule.
Sue enjoys teaching and showing her patients how to better care for their teeth and periodontal (gum) health. It gives her great pleasure when a person is successful in caring for their dental needs.

Dr. JP instituted a dental educational outreach program to educate preschool and kindergarten students. This program is in a number of the local community schools. The children really enjoy the presentation and the goody bags. Our dental outreach program also has a component for Boy Scouts and the Smiles mentoring program. Sue is pleased to run these programs for Dr. JP.
