Meet Dr. Alvis

  • Jerry Alvis
    DDS

    Dentistry gives me the opportunity to make a difference in people's lives. I love the interactions with both adults and children, and at the end of the day, it doesn't even seem like “work” at all! My philosophy is to take new patients, work up a plan to correct any problems they may have, and do my best to keep them healthy from that point forward through regular follow-up cleanings and examinations. It is incredibly rewarding to help a patient regain their oral health and allow him or her to smile again.
