"The dentist's and office personnel here were not only very accommodating and understanding but very helpful! They don't have to be asked to explain things because they understand that your didn't attend school for dentistry and explain exactly what is wrong, if there is a problem in words that you can understand workout making you feel inferior or dim. They even help manage your dental plan without request and set up a schedule that will benefit both you and your wallet and then print it out and discuss it with you. I couldn't ask for a better experience. I'm also going to add that their extremely patient and skilled in their actual work. I'm terrified of dentist's in general because of traumatizing past experiences and was made as comfortable and relaxed/calm as was currently possible despite these hardships. I haven't felt a thing during any procedures preformedper this office. 100% recommended"- D.J. / Google / Nov 12, 2018
