What Our Patients are Saying
Just had my first appointment post-COVID-19. I was very impressed with the protocols in place and check-in process from the electronic sign-in to the temperature and oxygen checks when you arrive. Clean facilities have never been an issue here and there was hand sanitizer readily available in the waiting area. Overall great experience and felt safe coming back.
My family has been going to this dentist for over 20 years. Always courteous, reliable and helpful. They went to extra lengths to help when I was having trouble getting my son's dental accident covered by insurance. Highly recommend.
Been going to this dentist since I was a kid and the staff are always very friendly. The dentists and hygienists go the extra mile to make sure my teeth are well taken care of!
