I have not been to a dentist in 30 yrs because of some horrible experiences. When I walked in the dentist door my heart was going a mile a minute. However, EVERYONE in the office is kind, considerate, patient & my dentist was fantastic! I have to have extensive work done but I won't be half as nervous. Terrific staff! I would recommend to everyone.
