Every local community has a story, a history, and a unique personality that cannot be replicated. This is often thanks to specialized, small-scale businesses, like this one, which contribute to a neighborhood’s distinctive character and promote a thriving ecosystem in their community. Small, independent businesses offer diverse products and services, fostering economic resilience by removing the local economy’s dependence on a single industry. When you buy local, you build local, and deepen your connection to your own community.
As a result, patronizing a local business like this is an act of community building. Check out their website to learn more about the local experience you can discover today.

Dr. Milton Clement, DDS started out honing his craft in both cosmetic and general dentistry, but it was this background that helped him dive headlong into implant dentistry. Working with implants, Dr. Clement explores the art of repairing clients' mouths with new custom-fitted false teeth or tasty Chiclets as necessary. He's been filling mouths for more than a quarter century, and now helms his own team at a bright, family-friendly office. Though Clement's dental practice specializes in implants, other popular procedures range from general exams and fillings to dental surgery and enamel shaping. The studio diagnoses many of these issues using high-tech gear such as same-day CT scans and digital x-rays.
