Meet Our Friendly Dental Team – Broken Arrow, OK

Get to Know Our Motivated, Caring Dental Team

the Berkshire Dental Group team

Our dental team is unique in the fact that they aren’t motivated by making money, but by taking care of the patients that they’ve grown to care for over years of treating them. Many of our team members have been seeing patients for decades and take the time to get to know and be on a first-name basis with them. One thing that our patients love about our team is that they’re great to be around!
