I really think that our staff and our team is what really sets us apart from other offices. They are very compassionate. They are very understanding. If you have dental anxiety, they get it. It's all about the patient, what the patient wants. What's best for the patient. That's the number one thing here, is that we provide a service that's best for the patient. I can tell you that I would never do anything on a patient that I wouldn't do for a family member.

Why do I love coming to this practice? They make you feel comfortable, and they do a great job. I just can't express how good the staff is, all of them. Some of them don't even know me, and they have been very respectful, and courteous, and supportive and complimentary. That makes a big difference, I think, where you go. Some people in business practices, hi, how are you, and you go on, but here they make you feel like you're part of their family. I think that's a big thing, and you feel comfortable coming back. I've been here a lot in the past couple months. They're all very, very positive. I don't think I've met a negative person here. It's been a very good experience for me.
