My Personal Philosophy
“My goal is to educate my patients and colleagues about current concepts in dental medicine and to provide the best ethical advice and care possible for their individual situations. I intend to uphold honesty, integrity, and professionalism as key components of my overall persona and service to humanity.”
The ability to reach this goal comes from a solid and caring family and wife who support countless hours of out-of-house labor and continuing education. Understanding that my skills as an educator, as a scientist, and as a clinician are God-given gifts, I believe that it is my mission to uphold the ethical ideals of the profession of dentistry and to benefit the patients who it serves.
See what these happy patients have to say about Dr. Huff:
“My very first visit to Dr Huff was a very warm reception. I had been suffering with a toothache for 3 yrs, 24/7. I tried for a year to find a dentist to help me. I saw Dr Huff’s ad in the Bargain Hunter. I decided to give him a try cause I couldn’t take the pain any longer. When I told how severe my toothache was, they got me in as soon as possible. The receptionist was very kind & polite. Dr. Huff greeted me and asked how he could help me. I explained to him my unbearable pain. He did 3 D x-rays and showed them to me and explained what was going on with my tooth & what he needed to do. He said there was no saving my tooth & it had to be pulled. He was very caring and concerned. He found I had a tooth with a crown that was cracked,had an abscess, and also a cyst. He pulled my tooth and removed the cyst. I had instant relief from the pain. Dr. Huff and his staff was very helpful and kind. I would refer anyone to go to him. Thank You Dr. Huff. God Bless you and your staff!” – Pam B
