    The best experience I've had with a dentist! Wonderful, attentive, and friendly staff who gave me a very personalized experience. I had a lot of facetime with Dr. Cho and she patiently explained everything that was going to happen during the appointment and why. She also took time to explain in detail her findings during the check-up and my options for treatment. The cleaning was thorough and not rushed. My appointment started on time and they never kept me waiting. I highly recommend her office!

    Dr. Cho was the best and most thorough dentist I've ever seen! Great cleaning experience and I feel I can really trust her expertise. It's also the first dentist I've ever gone to where they sit with you to go over your insurance and exactly what it covers. Will definitely continue my dental care with her and her wonderful staff.

    These guys were friggin' awesome. I've been to so many dentists who grill you over dental hygiene, and are generally rude and unprofessional. Dr Cho was polite, professional, listened to my questions, and more importantly came up with a straightforward, to-the-point game plan to get my teeth back in good health. Also the dental assistant was very funny and friendly. I'd highly recommend these folks.

    Dr. Cho, her assistant, and her office administrator are all wonderful! They were so kind, chipper, and very welcoming. I don't have any fears or issues related to dental work, but they all still made an effort to be gentle, and walk through the dental "mumbo jumbo." I even got an insurance break down on what's covered and what would be out of pocket (for treatments) - which I've never had before (I usually have to figure it out for myself, or take the word of the staff checking me in/out). All in all, between the great visit, the excellent location, and the great cleaning, I am happy to have found Dr. Cho and already have my next cleaning booked!

Since i was a new patient we talked through my dental history and what i expected out of the visit. 10/10 would come again, my teeth cleaning was so thorough i felt like i left with whiter teeth!
