I myself had dental issues as a very young child and it was through finding a caring dentist with my parents, that allowed me to have treatment done. Then over the years orthodontics and such and then college and down that ... Computer science wasn't just for me. I felt that I really need to be interacting with patients that were people I should say one on one. I started pursuing dentistry and continued with that. I guess it's just from those early years of being in the dental chair and seeing things around me and that environment. I really liked the profession.
Dr. Chase’s mission as a dentist is to improve his patients’ lives in ways they may not even realize are happening. He enjoys customizing smiles for them and making them as comfortable as possible while they receive excellent dental care in his Mount Laurel, NJ office.
