Front desk lady was terrible. She hardly speaks English and does not explain fees and other important info well enough. Bad attitude. There was a young lady I had worked with befirevthat was great, friendly and knowledgeable. But today she wasn'tthere. The new girl caused me to get a new dentist.

I'm not crazy about going to the dentist, but on the whole this was fine--and for me, that's high praise. Office is very efficient, and there was no wait. Everything was explained to me and the doctor took the time toask if I was okay during the procedure since the instruments make me very nervous.
