Every patient who visits with Dr. Sanor receives her full attention. One of her favorite parts of being a dentist is having the opportunity to get to know our patients and building friendships with each of them. Dr. Sanor feels very fortunate to work with such a wonderful group of women who she can call her friends. These women help to make every day at work a joy.
Dr. Sanor’s goal is to provide her patients and their families the kind of quality dental experience that she desires for her own family. In her spare time, she loves being with her family.
