It is no surprise that Fisher & Zitterich Dentistry is unique among dental practices. It’s simple really… they practice dentistry differently! So it’s also no surprise that their reputation throughout the area is exceptional, because of their quality and care, and because they always put their patients first. They love what they do, how they do it, and most importantly, why they do it!
What Fisher & Zitterich Dentistry does so well is offer the highest standards in dental care, with the very latest technology and techniques. FZ Dentistry is privately-owned and operated, unlike many dental corporations in town. So they serve only their patients, not corporate managers or accountants. Their emphasis is on customer care and customer service, so that each patient has the best experience possible.
How has FZ Dentistry grown to be one of the top practices, not just in our area, but in the country? Dr. Michael Fisher and Dr. Marisa Zitterich have always placed a high priority on personal and professional growth. They love growing in their skills and abilities, and those of their growing team, to serve and care for their patients even better. For example, when the State Board requires dentists to take an average of 12 hours of Continuing Education courses per year to stay current with their licensure, Dr. Fisher and Dr. Zitterich take 50, 60 or more. And they even teach other dentists as well!
Why the team at FZ Dentistry does what they do is the most important thing of all. They know they are there to serve their patients and make their lives better and healthier through the very best dentistry available anywhere. It really is just that simple…
From the moment you walk in the door, you will see and feel the difference. You enter a spotless and beautiful space to be greeted instantly by a smiling face, and not someone behind a glass sliding door… The entire team and the doctors are friendly and professional from start to finish. FZ Dentistry has a passion for creating beautiful smiles through full-mouth makeovers, whether that be with veneers or implants. They also help with everyday general dentistry with their growing team of four doctors, five hygienists, incredible assistants, and an amazing administrative team to help everyone in the family.
