    Everyone in the office were very nice and welcoming, from the moment I walked in. While 'in the chair ' everything was explained and talked about...and Dr. Ho seems great! I have a follow up appointment in a few weeks.

    When I arrived the staff were friendly and helped prepare me for my first visit. I met with the dental office manager and she went over some forms with me and asked me questions. Then I met with the hygienist, who took all the x-rays and measurements required for a first visit. She was extremely friendly and personable. She then did a cleaning. I met with the dentist who went over everything with me in great detail. It was a great experience!

    From the minute I walked into the door the staff were attentive, friendly, and helpful. Check in was quick and Lynette the hygienist was so kind, knowledgeable, and pleasant to be around. Dr. Karen Ho was also very friendly, approachable, and knowledgeable. All of the staff working there were courteous and made the appointment run smoothly. Would highly recommend visiting this amazing team if you are looking for a new dentist.

    She was super nice, talks you through everything and explains what they are doing during the entire process. Makes sure you understand what is going on with your treatment and shows you any problem areas so you know you aren’t getting ripped off.

    My 3 year old daughter and I went to see Dr. Ho for the first time. This was also my daughter's first ever visit at the Dentist. The staff were all very friendly and helpful and Dr. Ho was amazing with my daughter. The children's room was beautiful and fun filled with stuffies, coloring books and treasures. I would definitely recommend going here especially if you have small children.

    I haven’t been to a dentist in roughly two years, after moving to a new city & not knowing how to pick a new dentist. Dr Ho’s staff were very welcoming & friendly. When it came time for the exam, Dr. Ho was very nice & took her time explaining everything to me thoroughly. They even found time for me to get a cleaning in after my exam & x-rays.

    I have painful TMJ issues, and not only was she considerate throughout my appointment, but both Dr. Ho and the people who worked there made sure I was comfortable the entire time. Honestly, the first time a dentist has been this concerned about the level of pain I was in.
