Dr.Hightower created Ambiance Dental Spa in 2007 with the vision of providing general dental services in a spa-like environment. "I wanted to change the way you viewed your typical dental office and make your experience unlike any other you ever had". Over the years she has attended numerous continuing education courses in Invisalign, Veneers and Six Month Smiles. Cosmetics is her passion as she loves to change the way people feel about their appearance and in turn change their life.
