They were gentle and communicated everything very clearly and transparently. They tell you the price of your visits in advance. Loved them. GO SEE THEM! Even if you haven't been in a long time. It's going to be okay."- T.B. / Google / Oct 02, 2017
"I love, love, love this dentist office. I was a patient at another office for the past 23 years but my daughters insurance wasn't accepted there. We brought her here after searching for a dentist. After working with Jennifer in the billing department on some insurance issues and the care we received from our hygienist and the dentist we saw I moved my care to this facility also. I am so pleased with everyone that I have opted to start bringing my other children as well. I won't suggest anyone else. Thank you for all the hard work and showing us how much you care about our teeth."- J.H. / Yelp / Oct 02, 2017
