Given my anxiety with teeth cleaning, this is the most relaxed I have been in a dentist chair in a long time. Great job Cheryl. She's top-notch.

Darla is my 12 year old daughter. She had to have 2 teeth removed. She was very nervous. The entire experience was wonderful. She tells me now that she had no reason to be scared.

I had a sudden tooth problem and walked in without appointment. They were excellent. Took me to room right away and dentist took care of the problem. Went back next day and everything was well organized. I do like the office staff, chair attendants and the dentist.
