Dr. Karl George started the original practice in Santa Clara. He turned it from an optometry office to a dental office.


Dr. Luann Plummer took over the practice and has been since. She established the family practice located on the corner of Scott and Benton.


Dr. Patricia Chao joined the practice with Dr. Plummer. She has big plans to continue a family practice atmosphere while incorporating new technologies to the office.
