I have nothing bad to say about this place. Everyone was friendly and I felt completely comfortable. Haven’t gone to the dentist in awhile and the worse part was just the anticipation of getting started. Doctor and Hygienist and staff were super!
Similarity T.
Usually hate going to the dentist. My old dentist use to tell me to fight through the pain and other things when I had to get procedures done so I ended up gaining a distrust in dentist but my dentist is the complete opposite. He waited for me to relax myself when it was time to get the needle or stopped the procedure if I felt pain or panic. I have an unexpected wonderful experience here.
