Meet Dr. Chapla
I am most passionate about providing comprehensive care for my patients with an emphasis on prevention of disease and education. I am excited about the dynamic nature of dentistry; it is such an evolving field with new innovations and always something to learn. When deciding on a career path, I was most interested in healthcare and art, and dentistry is the perfect combination of the two. I love meeting different people every day. Each patient has a different life experience and each story teaches me something about life. I truly love dentistry and enjoy coming to work every day.
