Wonderful experience for a routine cleaning!Angela's SUPER! Sometimes even a cleaning can be a bit stressful, but Angela's great with her humor and congeniality! And, she's thorough, too! She provides useful feed back and suggests better practices for taking care of one's teeth.Bill M.
Professional and friendly.I had a filling repaired. They explained everything and performed the procedure quickly and with a lot of attention to my comfort. I had no pain. It was a good experience.Barbara B.
I shouldn't have put this off so long. First of two visits for the installation of a crown. I've been putting this off for years. Turns out it was no big deal. The process was painless and much faster than I expected. Many thanks to the staff for making the process so smooth.Jenny P.
Caring and conscientious. Everyone in the office is always smiling, cheerful and friendly. I really appreciate their willingness to talk through any questions or concerns. They're also happy to go through the x-rays and describe what they are seeing. I've never enjoyed going to the dentist until I started going to this office.Dave B.
