Quotes

“As a dentist and patient team, we will strive to accomplish two goals: 1) to restore and maintain as close to perfect oral health as possible, and 2) to achieve Goal 1 as comfortably as possible. I treat every patient as if they were my mother, and I love my mom!”

Personal Favorites

Dr. Zak’s favorite Bible verse is I Corinthians 2:9, which states, “No eye has seen, neither ear heard, nor has entered the heart of mankind the things that God has prepared for those who love Him.”
