Nancy has been treating our patients and before that she treated Dr Klassman's father's patients for 34+ years! Nancy uses her extensive experience to educate patients to improve her patients' lives. She has been a rock in our practice and she loves to connect with patients, as she provides outstanding treatment. Patients always mention that Nancy is so proficient that they forget that they are at the dentist office and rather feel like they are visiting a longtime friend.
