Dr. James Willis and popular longtime Crozet dentist Dr. Emery Taylor have combined their practices and opened in a new office in the U.S. Joiner building on Three Notch’d Road. They held a ribbon cutting and open house August 28.

The new office has six chairs—making it Crozet’s biggest practice—uses hand-held, digital X-rays with virtually no radiation, keeps all its record digitally and has the most modern sterilizing equipment available.

“We do all dentistry, including cosmetic and restorations. This is as broad a service as you can find in general practice. We only refer out orthodontic cases,” said Willis.

“We want the office to be as comfortable as we can make it,” he said, beaming as he led a tour. “We didn’t want it to seem sterile. We have great taste in music, so patients hear great tunes while they’re in the chair. We have TVs for every chair. We’re as high-tech as any office in Albemarle. We use a clear-container inventory system developed for the U.S. Navy.

“We have hours from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday. We’ve got the best staff in town,” Willis asserted. “And—we have Emery! Dr. Taylor, with his experience, can take on anything.”

“If I start a case, I can finish it,” Taylor agreed confidently.
