About Your Dentist

John Pastorek, DMD

What I enjoy most about dentistry is witnessing the joyful emotion in a patient when he or she completes treatment. Whether it's gaining the ability to chew or improving one's smile, it's those moments that for me truly make this profession special.

My Mission

I don't take lightly the investment my patients put in me. Not many people look forward to going to the dentist, and I enjoy the challenge of improving one's experience when they come to my office. I value their trust, and always try to have an individual's best interest at heart. So at the end of the day, I would hope my patients say two things about me:
1) that they have a dentist who provides quality dental work,
2) that they trust that their dentist will always recommend what's best for them.
