    The office is at the Dentistry Collective is so nice and all of the employees are extremely friendly and caring. One of the best dental experiences I've had. Location is convenient, right off the 15 freeway and parking is a breeze. The technology they have is top notch and I felt extremely comfortable during the whole experience. My insurance combined with an in network discount made the pricing extremely reasonable for the work that was done. Would highly recommend.
