Really great. The office is young and upbeat and the doc is brilliant. She found a solution for me quickly and had her staff check to see what, if anything, was covered by insurance.

She's excellent all around. Just know that she's an orthodontist, not a general dentist. Since her page listed that she takes appointments for general dentistry and that's what I was looking for (conveniently close to me), I booked with her,but she doesn't do the bite wing x-rays that detect small cavities, so I'll need to go see someone else for that. Kind of wish I had known before booking the appointment, but she seems amazing at what she does and I'd highly recommend her.
