Amazing dentist and staff and the best work ever! I highly recommend this place!
From the initial phone call.. To my appointment everyone treated me very kindly. I couldn't have asked for more as a patient. Thank you all for everything.
I'm so glad I started as a patient over 10 years ago, because it is such a great feeling to have the "repairs" completed, and now I'm just in "maintenance" mode with a clean bill of dental health at every check-up!
Everyone is always so pleasant and every visit is a great experience.
I had my bottom two wisdom teeth pulled and it went very smoothly. They were very comforting and eased all my worries. I had absolutely no pain during the procedure.
I give them 5 stars!
