Heritage Family Dental
After graduating dental school, doctors Nissa and Paul McConnell spent time in active duty as dentists with the U.S. Army. Today, at Heritage Family Dental, they've taken on a different kind of duty: providing an alternative to impersonal corporate dental chains. Inside their cozy Evansville office, Nissa and Paul strive to build their legacy around traditional family values. Of course, they also build that legacy around their handy dental work, with their services covering everything from braces and bridges to implants, crowns, and emergency dental procedures.
