Very good and quick service to fix my dental problem. The Dr. listens to what you need. I would highly recommend this dentist!

Madison W.

Friendly and professional staff. I went for wisdom teeth extraction following an exam and x-rays and all in all I had a great efficient and pain-free experience. Couldn't have asked for better!

Grace N.

Great first impression, I am so scared of dentists but they made me feel welcome during the assessment and x-rays. Can't wait to go back and get my teeth fixed up!
