"Dr. Pruitt's arrival has been such a positive addition to our team. He brings additional experiences in the world of advanced dentistry,” Dr. James Harrold said. “Plus, he and his family have made their home locally, in their commitments to our community."

Pruitt said he chose dentistry due to his desire to help others.
