“Practicing dentistry gives me the opportunity to educate my patients and help them improve their oral health and function to result in beautiful, functional smiles that last a lifetime. I find it very rewarding to provide the highest quality of care and patient comfort while maintaining a relaxing environment.”
Dr. Elisabeth de Gaust has practiced dentistry since 1998 and joined our dental group in March 2012. She is originally from Gothenburgh, Sweden.
