"Scheduling an appointment was easy with their online booking system. Their front desk staff was very friendly and helpful through my experience. This was my first dental appointment after retirement and I was completely satisfied with my visit. My Dentist was very nice and accommodating with my pain. She almost immediately diagnosed my symptom and referred me to an alternate clinic versus trying to keep the business for her practice. I will be completing my treatment, and all future dental appointments with Pat Booker Dental Care."- J.J. / Google / Jun 13, 2019
"I hate going to the dentist but the staff at Pat Booker Dental Care are excellent at helping ease my anxiety! Everyone is so friendly and efficient. I had to get a couple fillings this go around and I was in and out in no time. After the numbness wore off, there was no residual pain and I was able to eat and drink with no problem! I moved out of Universal City a while back but I still come here even though it is about 30 minutes away from my home. They really take care of me here!! I highly recommend this place."- R.M. / Google / Jun 11, 2019
