    The staff was all very friendly and genuine about providing quality care for your specific needs. Clear with what next steps are and scheduling was easier. A very clean and sanitized environment.

    Get super anxious at dentist visits. He however made it the best trip to the dentist ever. As he would do things he would explain why and constantly ask how I was doing. Definitely recommending him to everyone I know!
