He saw firsthand how important a healthy smile was to an individual’s self-esteem and well-being.
Dr. Poller’s utilizes his education and years of expertise and creative artistic skills to bring your healthy smile to life.

With over 29 years of dental experience, Dr. Poller and the entire Apprehensive Patient’s staff continues offer their patients the most advanced and caring dental care available. …
