Dr. Clifton enjoys dentistry for a number of reasons. He likes helping patients smile again and the fact that even though dentists do the same technical procedures each day, each situation is different from the previous one because each patient presents a unique set of circumstances. He also appreciates the opportunity to continue to learn and grow because new techniques and materials are constantly being introduced in the field of dentistry.
