Hygienist Robert "Bob" Arthur
I'm an Honorably Discharged Veteran of the 49th Tactical Fighter Squadron from the U.S.A.F. After the military I attended Penn College and graduated with my degree in Applied Sciences getting licensed in Dental Hygiene. I have just over 20 years experience in dentistry and have enjoyed practicing each and every day. Meeting our patients and having the determined ability and skills acquired over the years has given me not only the competence to assist Dr. Wetzel in treatment but also the confidence and desire to achieve the goals of treatment for each individual person. Away from work I enjoy spending time with my daughter whom is away at college now so the time together is very precious. Owning and living on a farm I'm never without projects and there is always plenty of work away from work to be done. I look forward to meeting you and giving you the quality and care of what our outstanding dental office and team has to offer.
