    I had been going to one dentist for a few years and decided to try a new dentist last July. Experience was ok, but I wasn’t satisfied. Open care brought me to Smile Science and I’ve had the best experience there. My hygienist was amazing, friendly and very kind.

    Everyone at the office was very nice. My appointment was on time and everything was clean and modern. They have personal tvs to watch during the appointment that provide a great distraction. Everyone was friendly and knowledgeable.

    Came in for a check in after not seeing the dentist in more than 2 years, I was put at ease right away. The staff was great, they walked me through what issues they saw and recommended treatment and did not try to sell me unneeded services. Highly recommend!

    The hygienist was great! She explained everything she was doing, why she was doing it, and how I can take better care of my mouth for next time. I haven’t had such a great clean in a while!!

    Dr Monica was great. She was quick and didn’t try to sell me on unnecessary things like I’ve experienced in the past. Glad to have found a place that I will return to.

    Super friendly staff. Everyone was so great and I got to the watch The Office the whole time! Got some coffee, learned some new tricks with flossing, and was educated on what my teeth need specifically. The hygienist was amazing and very friendly. They also play great music and the front desk receptionist was extremely helpful. They’re my new go to dentist.

    Dr Monica was a very nice and goofy dentist! Her professionalism with bits of goofiness made me very comfortable. I felt at ease and comfortable asking ignorant questions to better my oral health / feed my curiosity. Definitely will go back and refer others!

    Laid back atmosphere. Fantastic front desk. I spent the most time with Laurie the hygienist. She took her time and explained everything beforehand. Dr. Urda is cool and so approachable! I'm actually looking forward to my next trip to the dentist!

    It was a really good experience at opencare. I hadn't been to a dentist in a long while and every staff member I interacted with was great. They also have netflix on their ceiling so I got to watch The Office while having my teeth cleaned which made the time pass by faster.

    Excellent service, everything was explained clearly, including my remaining insurance benefits, what I needed to pay out of pocket and what was covered. The doctor is very busy and didn't dedicate a lot of time as a first visit to establish care. I guess this is pretty common.

    It was an over very good experience and I plan and going back. They were very kind about me not having been to a dentist in years. So that put me at ease, and they would always explain what they were doing and if I ever needed a break they would stop.

    Everything was great. They were very reasonable in suggesting a water pick for my permanent retainers. They also built up a lot of trust by walking me through the X-rays and other parts of the process. Also texting notifications was very nice.

    I should probably start off saying I hate most medical professionals. Too many of them are unyielding in their "always right" attitude, and often not flexible enough to really meet the needs of patients. Not so with Dr Monica. When the initial exam showed we'd need to do some deeper cleaning than the norm, she accommodated my extreme fears around needles (novicane) in multiple ways. One of her amazing dental assistants even resourcefully used an x-ray vest as a makeshift weighted blanket to help keep me calm throughout the whole procedure. This is the first time in a dentist office I've felt cared for as a whole person beyond the state of my mouth. Also, everyone there, starting from the front desk in, are so upbeat and friendly! 110% recommend.
