Meet our Abilene Dentist Dr. Brian Toogood
"I was fortunate to have a great dentist growing up, who made going to the dentist fun. My goal has always been to provide the best, most comfortable dentistry possible. When a patient is comfortable and isn't scared of coming to the dentist, they are more likely to come in on a regular basis for routine checkups. When we perform routine hygiene visits and checkups, we can help prevent major problems or catch small problems early. The less dentistry we have to perform, the better the patient will be in the long run, ultimately leading to our goal of maintaining the patient's dentition for a lifetime. "
Dr. Brian Toogood joined the practice in July 2007. He and his wife, Amanda, have a daughter and son.
