One of my best experiences ever at a dentist. They got me right in the very next morning when I called at closing time the night before. I was able to bring my infant son and the girls helped with himso that I could get X-rays and not worry about him. Overall a wonderful dentist and practice in whole.

Dr. Christine was very nice..and went into detail about my treatment plan. However a 3 hour wait for a tooth extraction was a bit excessive to experience. Also I was charged for a surgical procedure when in fact the doctor wasable to pull the tooth without cutting the gum. I was not satisfied at all with the wait time nor the billing representative.

Dr. Christine was great. I had an emergency situation and called her clinic before it was open, she called me back straight away and let me squeeze in for the first appointment of the day. She prescribed antibiotics as the firstcourse of treatment in preparation for the next appointment. She explained each step carefully and concisely. Dr. Christine is a wonderful dentist. Highly recommend her.

In general the Dr Christine is good and nice. BUT there is one thing they can improve: they should RESPECT their patients' time. I came to the place on time. They asked me to sit there and wait. I asked somequestions about the treatment plan while waiting(it probably took less than 10 mins). Later they told me that I need to reschedule my app with the dentist cuz it has already past 20 mins... This is the second time I felt that they were wasting my time. Last time I came in and was schedule to do a wisdom teeth extraction. But when I arrived, they said my teeth were too hard to extract and I need to reschedule with a specialist. They had my teeth X-ray photos before. Why don't you just tell me earlier so that I don't need to waste time to come in and you just told me to go home and reschedule the app!?
