  • Everyone in the office, from the moment I walked in the door, was courteous and friendly: It is a good team that makes a patient feel relaxed, yet fully informed regarding the procedures, ongoing and future, that are involved in treatment. Thanks… for teaching me the proper way to brush!

  • I appreciate the professionalism of everyone.

  • Everyone in the office was so nice and helpful. It was the best, most comprehensive dental appointment I have ever had. Thank you for taking the time to explain each and every Xray. I now have a clear understanding of what needs to be done. You have a great team. Thank you all!

  • My son liked everyone he met so well that he is inspired to take his dental care much more seriously and in a way that neither I nor his mother had been able to achieve with him. Thank you.

  • After one session in this office I already know that I am connected with a periodontists that cares about their profession and that I as their patient can regain healthy gums. The staff and office are both professional and caring. I appreciated being referred to this office!
