Center for Implants and General Dentistry

Dr. Clay Keith

Hello! I’m Dr. Clay Keith.

My philosophy for patient care has always been very straightforward: provide my patients with enough information to make good decisions concerning their dental health. I believe in always being honest, gentle, never judgemental, extensively compassionate, and consistently understanding. Many times, my patients will hear me say, “If you were my family member, this is what I would recommend.” It is so true! This feeling has always guided me to make the right decisions concerning patient care.
