Our Philosophy

Townsend Family Dental Center’s dental philosophies are established on personal integrity and science. Dr. Townsend informs his patients of the best treatment needed and goes above and beyond the standard of care to the best of his ability.

This alone can make a dentist successful, but in his care a patient will receive more than that. Dentistry is a very personal service that requires the establishment of a rapport and trust. Dr. Townsend provides family dentistry with a personal touch and makes a point to be an excellent listener to his patients’ needs.

Our Mission & Vision

Our mission is to present necessary treatment plans and provide competent, quality dentistry that exceeds patients’ expectations in a warm, loving atmosphere.

We will serve and support Liberty County and surrounding areas as a center for dental care and as an active supporter of the medical community. We will contribute to the dental care of the poor and the underserved here in our community.

We will always expand and improve our services by being progressive, technologically current, and receptive to the wants and needs of our patients and our community.

“From the moment you walk in, everyone makes you feel like you are a part of a family.”
