“I walked into that place feeling very nervous (past experiences with another dentist office) but I was able to relax really fast. From the moment I walked in I was greeted and treated by friendly staff who explained everything. I had two young ladies walk into the room I was in and they went into details about the procedure and all the aftercare process. They answered all my question and worked great as a team to get everything done as safe as possible and as fast as they could to get back on my way. My experience was great and I will definitely recommend this office.”

-Mayra M.

-Ken M.

“The staff were very courteous with my whole family.. The dentist was great explaining and showing me everything that had to be done. Then when it was time for the shots, She took her time numbing with topical so the shots were barely felt.”
