"This place is great! As soon as I walked in the door I was greeted by friendly staff and given paper work since I this was my first visit. I had a few questions and the receptionist was more than happy to help me out. As soon as I finished they took me back for exrays, and then took me to where I would get my cleaning.... The girl that cleaned my teeth was excellent at her job! Super friendly and explained to me everything she was doing and why she was doing it. The dentist makes me nervous, so that helped me out a lot! The doctor was very nice, too, and did great answering any questions i had! I definitely recommend this place to anyone!! You won't be disappointed (: See More"- S.M. / Facebook / Aug 21, 2017
