Fast, friendly, quality work! An old crown loosened up and they got me right in and were able to remove it, clean it out and re-cement it. Other places would have wanted me to get a new crown. Thanks for everything!

This is a small dental office which provides excellent care. The staf is very attentive and professional in all counts. Being a small office makes my feel, that I am getting the attention I need. I only wish they had some availability out of the regular office hours, but that understandable.

My appointment was at 4:20 and I arrived around 4, expecting to wait until it was time but the reception called my name right away and let me know the dentist knew I was there and a few seconds later I was called back and Dr Stranik was very efficient and explain everything he was doing and I was in and out by 4:30, just 10 minutes after my actual appointment time! You guys are great and definitely my dentist for good!
