Meet Dr. Sylvan
DR. JAMES P. SYLVAN
Dr. Sylvan is the second in a family of four dentists. Growing up in the midst of his father’s dental practice, he learned the best way to set up his own practice to provide excellent patient care in an atmosphere of professionalism and warmth. Treating patients the way he would want to be treated is inherent in his family’s legacy.
Dr. Sylvan is always respectful of your time, your concerns about the health of your teeth and your sensitivities about dental care. He and his experienced, dedicated staff members have worked together for more than 20 years. Many of their patients have become friends and practically family, and have remained under Dr. Sylvan’s care for two or three generations. His practice treats patients of all ages, from kids to grandparents. They all recognize that Dr. Sylvan’s famous warmth and good humor is second only to his serious dedication to their dental care and oral health.
