What Our Patients Say About Us

“I have been here twice, once for my teen son and once for my 3 yr old daughter. Both times, the appointment was easy to make I didn’t have to play phonetag as is the case with so many healthcare related businesses. The people at the front desk run like a well-oiled machine. I have never seen the intake process go so smoothly or so quickly. Each time I’ve been, I sat for less than 5 minutes before my child was called back. In the earlier case, they gave me the paperwork for my other child so I could complete it at home and have it ready to go when I returned for the second visit. The technicians are super friendly and are all about education. There was an explanation given before or during anything they did and one even utilized singing with my 3 year old to reinforce what she was teaching her. In both cases, the staff spoke directly to my children so that they could participate in their care and only referred to me when my child didn’t know how to answer. The two dentists I’ve encountered were very friendly, professional, easy to understand from the kids’ level and did not try to sell us on services we didn’t need. Overall, very very pleased!!”
