No one walking the dementia journey has to walk alone.

Dr. Norris Family Dentistry, leader in Larimer County

Dr. Vinna Norris, D.D.S. and her caring staff say they are committed to “personalized, professional dental care in a modern, yet intimate setting.”  Last week, they showed that such a claim is not just talk.  Dr. Norris and her staff are dedicated to providing excellent care even for their patients who are living with dementia.  The entire staff invested their time to become more dementia-aware.  They discussed challenges in dental care and strategies for making dental care less stressful for their patients with dementia and dementia care partners.   Dr. Norris’ office is the first dental practice in Larimer County to become dementia-friendly (joining one other dental practice in Greeley.)   Dr. Norris, with her kindness, compassion, and desire to continually learn for the sake of her patients, gives all dental and medical professionals  in Northern Colorado, a worthy example to follow.  Thank you, Dr. Norris, and your staff, for providing excellence in dental practice and leadership in our community.
