“I had my first visit in the office last week and the staff was AMAZING!!!! They made me feel so comfortable and at ease because the dentist is not my favorite place to be, but I had a great experience and would definitely recommend going to this office. It is also a great office to go to because they offer more services than a normal dentist office such as implants, veneers and so much more. I would highly recommend this office!!!”
