    Had some scheduling issues in the beginning because opencare and the office availability differed. They have very qualified professionals there no doubt and I learned more and had a better understanding of my teeth and applicable steps than before.

    Definitely 5 out of 5 stars! I had not been to a dentist in at least 3 years because I was nervous about the work I needed to get done. Opencare finally got me through the door and it was such a pleasant experience. The entire staff was personable, friendly, thorough, professional, and helpful. They made me feel extremely welcome and confident that I will be taken care of. Proud to say that this is my new dentist.
