Dr. Amy Winter
“People are hands down the best part of my job. I love working side by side with the awesome Harbor Square Dental Team. I am honored to walk alongside my patients and help them achieve and maintain a happy healthy smile. Dentistry is an amazing intersection of science and humanity – I love to stay curious and learn about the countless advances every year, so that I can best serve you. Although dentistry is a big part of my life, I recognize that it is a small but important part of yours, and I would like to make it as seamless and positive of an experience as possible.”
