"I'm normally rather terrified of dentist offices because of my high gag reflex and the judgemental and almost belittling attitude of every previous dentist office I've been to has resulted in rather bad teeth. I was delightfully surprised that this office seems to understand that I'm trying to fix my dental issues while treating me with the care and respect I would expect as an adult. I've only been by one visit but I find myself not minding going back for repair and cleanings. Thank you for not being like the other offices!"- S.B. / Google / Mar 15, 2019
