"Good experience. Hygenist, Dentist and Support Staff all very knowlegeable, pleasant and considerate. I had a bad experience at another Dentist long ago and was very reluctant to keep this appointment. But, I am glad i did. It was fine, and my teeth/smile look so much better!"

This is a new dental practice for me having moved here recently. The entire staff is friendly and caring. I’ve always disliked going to the dentist but this practice helped to alleviate my fears.
