Our Core Values


Our Belief:

Integrity is the backbone of the office and is the foundation of our reputation. Every member of the team is expected to operate with integrity in all matters in the practice.


Be able to give your word and keep it. Do what is right. Integrity is what you do when no one is looking.
Eleisha J. Nickoles, DDS Wheeling, WV


Our Belief:

If you are in the dental healthcare business, you must have compassion for the patients.


Put yourself in the other person’s shoes. Don’t judge; try to find out the root of why. Exhibiting thoughtfulness, both professionally and personally, to let them know what is best. Listening and hearing the patient, giving credibility to what they are saying. Always being kind and helpful. We will always exhibit a positive and upbeat attitude while in the presence of our patients, whether on the phone or in person. Sending out thank-you cards when a patient is sincere or sympathy card when a patient is hurting.


Our Belief:

You get respect when you give respect.


We respect our patients and each other. Treat people the way we would like to be treated, even if it is difficult. Respect the practice and equipment like it is yours.


Our Belief:

Teams can make or break the practice.


Trust everyone to do their job. Having confidence and being on the same page instills trust for the patient. Always keeping things confidential and not gossiping, both with patients and co-workers.


Our Belief:

No one can run this practice all by themselves. It takes everyone doing their hired jobs but also goes above that by helping each other. No one is above any task that needs done so that we can bond as a team and get done at the same time, walking out the door at night, together.


Working together as one, having no walls between departments, not pointing fingers or blame, jump in and help each other without being told, keeping everyone caught up together.
