Neil Starr, DDS
He is married to Lily and they have three children, Sam, Josh and Ilanna.
Dr. Starr loves, loves, loves dentistry. He loves treating his patients’ dental needs, restoring their teeth and smiles. In fact, little else gives him as much pleasure.
When he is out with his family, others may ask him personal dental questions, (knowing he is a dentist). After maybe five or ten minutes of discussion, they may turn to his wife and apologize for taking up so much of his personal time. To this his wife Lily will quickly reply, "Not a problem at all. In fact, he so loves what he does-you just made his day"
