Dr. James M. Wells, DDS

My life has been richly blessed by getting to know so many wonderful people and considering them part of my extended family. It makes going to the office fun! I really do not see myself ever retiring, because I enjoy the magic of helping a patient develop a positive self-esteem and improved quality of life when we restore or improve their smile. The patients really appreciate what we are doing for them, and my staff and I would not want to miss the warm feeling of thanks that the patients return to us every day!
