A broken tooth finally forced me into what I should have done years ago. I've had two visits now and couldn't be happier. The staff and Dr. Baxley are amazing. They made sure of my comfort every syrup of the way. I wish I hadn't waited so long. This is pain free dentistry."- A.T. / Facebook / Nov 14, 2017
