About Your Dentist

Robert C. Sparks, DMD

"Real integrity is doing the right thing, knowing that nobody's going to know whether you did it or not." -Oprah Winfrey

My Mission

“As a dentist, I am blessed to have the opportunity to serve my community and make a positive difference in my patients’ lives. My mission in dentistry is to educate and empower my patients and provide them with the highest quality of ethical dental care. I am committed to delivering treatment with compassion, honesty, and a rigorous attention to detail.  I want my patients to rest assured that my team and I will treat them with the same care and respect that would we give our own families. My goal every day is to ensure that my patients leave the dental chair healthy, satisfied, and most importantly, happy.”
