I walked in as an emergency visit patient and the office staff happily helped me get in to see the dentist immediately. The dentist and his entire staff were caring and most professional. I would recommend this office to anyone. I wish I didn’t live so far away (4 hours) or I would become a regular patient myself. Lorraine S 8/5/2022
Who goes to the dentist expecting to have fun? That was what I experienced during my visit. I want to give a shout out to Lori and Maria who made my experience enjoyable. And many thanks to Lori who had me laughing throughout the visit!
