"I truly enjoy the practice of dentistry. Dentistry is an honorable profession that encompasses integrity and compassion. I have the privilege and joy to practice with my son, Dr. Peter Miskovich. He possesses a wealth of information with tremendous skills. It also is an honor to practice with our staff who dedicate themselves to the ideals of respect and the pursuit of knowledge in order to care for people.

Finally, we have had and continue to have wonderful patients to care for. The aspects of dentistry I enjoy the most are these relationships in which we help people attain the health they deserve in a manner that enhances their self-esteem."
