Desire to Pursue Dentistry:

Dr. Lepetich admits that as a child he was fearful of going to the dentist.  However, over the years he realized the care that dentists can provide and the way dental work can change people’s lives.  Through many experiences of shadowing different dentists, he realized this was a profession that he strongly desired to pursue.  Dr. Lepetich has always had a special attention to detail and enjoyed working with his hands and now enjoys seeing the benefits that modern dentistry can provide.   He understands how personally rewarding dentistry is when you are upfront and honest with patients, take the time to thoroughly understand their individual needs, and let them know you truly care.  He has found there is more to dentistry than just ‘treating a tooth’.

He and his family love spending time together; whether family vacations, sporting activities, or just hanging out at the house.

Message from Dr. Lepetich:

I strive to have a dental practice and team that will stand out about the rest.  In a time where corporate dentistry is continually expanding, I feel having a family owned private practice gives me the opportunity to truly give individualized care. 

All dentists have their own philosophy and approach to treatment.  I tend to take the conservative path.  I am very thorough and detailed, and will explain any concerns that I see.  I will let you know issues that are of immediate concern, and also those areas that we will need to keep an eye on and monitor over time.  Our office does not do high pressure sales or try to push treatment that is not needed.  I understand barriers to dental work, whether they are time, cost, anxiety, fear, etc.  However, let us help you through these.  I am here in my practice for the long term and hope to develop a long term relationship to help you however I can.
