 When I returned home to the Bahamas in 1989 my vision was to create a distinct professional environment and culture that rivals the best offices in the United States. Today, my vision is to become that unique facility that attracts the International patient to Nassau at Center for Specialized Dentistry. In essence, we believe we are the best in the world.”
