“I take joy from the personal relationships that have developed over the many years of dental practice. I am seeing friends every day and I know their children and grandchildren. I take satisfaction in knowing that these patients have enjoyed the benefits of a healthy mouth and avoid unnecessary dental treatment and tooth loss that may otherwise occurred. It is a joy to see treatment that I did 20 or 30 years ago, still intact and providing good service to my patients.” – Dr. Prigmore
High Personal Standards
Dr. James Prigmore’s professional and ethical standards dictate that only necessary treatment is done with the precision that assures long-term dental health. We intend to prevent the need for future treatment by educating and motivating our patients in dental hygiene and proper diet.
Treating our patients as they would want to be treated, and going that extra mile to assure satisfaction, has always been his credo.
Dr. Prigmore is a general dentist in the truest sense of the term. He performs all facets of dentistry such as dentures, partials, root canals, extractions, crowns, bridges, limited braces, and of course, fillings. In addition, Dr. Prigmore is proud to offer high-quality dental care to children to ensure they have a healthy, beautiful smile for life.

Greatest Case Story
Although Dr. Prigmore strives to consistently provide precision dental care and demands the highest standards, his proudest moments come on a more human level. A typical example is a patient we will call “Jeff.” Jeff is a married father of two teenagers. Jeff has a leadership role in the community and Jeff was a dental phobic. Walking in the front door would cause him to panic. He would sweat, shake, and fidget. Avoiding dental care caused his mouth to be devastated. We treated him just as we treat all of our patients. We listened to his concerns, addressed his fears and generally held his hand—metaphorically and in actuality. We started slowly with simple procedures. His confidence grew as he learned that dentistry could be painless. He is now a consistent patient—along with his wife and two children.
