WHAT OUR PATIENTS SAY

“Truth be told, the dentist terrified me and I always had a reason to put it off. When I heard their motto, ‘We Cater to Cowards’, I laughed a little, but as it turns out, they really do. I can proudly say I no longer fear the dentist!”
- Erica, patient since ‘09

WHAT OUR PATIENTS SAY

I’ve been a patient for several years… tonight was my 5 year old son’s first visit. KRISTA D. was amazing with him! She made sure he was well informed with the tools she was using and what she was going to do. She made him feel comfortable and it was a great first experience! The office, entire staff and Doctors are friendly and do great with the kids. Happy patients!

Amazing dentist! My kids (one who was asked to leave a previous practice for anxiety) love going here! The dental assistants, dentists, and front desk receptionists are all so kind and helpful. We are so thankful to have found them!

State of the art office. Staff is exceptional. Completely booked? No problem. They get you in anyway. After work hours is necessary for my family and they accommodate. Joe gave me a tour and a gift before I even sat down. No billing surprises at the end because they give you an estimate before each and every procedure. I’ll never go anywhere else. They’ve re-imagined dental care. Phenomenal! Great job, gentleman.
