"A trip to the dentist can be a scary thing, causing anxiety coupled with the fear of pain. I've been to Dr. Smith, with Dental Works several times now, and I felt I should comment to my experience. I had two fillings this last time, and he could sense my nervousness. He was able to numb the area well, and then completed the work as swiftly as I could of ever imagined anyone doing so. Literally, within minutes, he had finished, and was ready to begin the filing. I can't thank him enough for completing the work so fast, and within hours, I could tell he had alleviated the pain I was having, and they look great. I would reccomend him to anyone who dreads going to the dentist as much as I do! LNE"- L.E. / Yelp / Dec 28, 2017

"I was really nervous to find a dentist being in a new area. I called around and read reviews. When I spoke to Wendy my mind was made up. So went in today and was greeted warmly. The staff is all amazingly nice and caring. Susan took me back and never left my side for long which really helped me calm down. The doctor was so concerned and took time to help me decide on process to do. Going to have my family come here as well. Never have I been treated with such care and not rushed. If you are like me and a mess around dentists please do not wait. This is the best choice around. I will not neglect my teeth any more."- A.P. / Yelp / Nov 16, 2017
