"My first time there was to have them check on a tooth that had been bothering me for months. I was afraid of the dentist (which is why I procrastinated for so long). When I arrived the receptionist met me with a smile. I had enough time to fill out my paperwork before I got called back. The dental assistant was nice and the Dentist was reassuring. The booker my appointment to be seen with an oral surgeon and made a follow up appointment to have the rest of my teeth checked out. I appreciate their kindness as well as making my trip there not so painful."- C.J. / Google / May 17, 2018
