First appointment and time spent was understandable and Ming was pleased with the results especially during her first two days of recovery. She didn't have any issues during the healing stage still ongoing. Ming sends her thanks for the considerations provided.

The "last liner" lost a piece in the front, right of the denture. I tried to eat a hotdog about 2 hours post appt and the denture came out immediately upon the first bite. Doc, you're a nice guy but thework doesn't rate the hype. I love ya, but your work didn't warrant the reputation. Sorry. The glue pulls the liner out.

I think it was the best dentist visit I've ever had! I called the office in excruciating pain from a wisdom tooth that needed to be pulled and they scheduled me right away. Once I arrived, I was seen almost immediately,without any wait time. The staff and Dr. Zelby are amazing and very friendly, professional and informative. They reviewed the issue and explained my options, to ensure I understood. Once he numbed my mouth, he had the tooth out in literally a minute or two and I never felt a thing! I also barely had any recovery time and was not even sore after the procedure, like I had been when visiting other dentists! He also even informed me, that I had an additional cavity I would need to take care of. As a person who normally dreads the doctors or dentist, I would HIGHLY recommend Dr. Zelby to anyone! Their office is very welcoming and makes you feel extremely calm and comfortable, even if you are in extreme pain and you will not find a better dentist anywhere!!

I could not possibly say everything that needs to be said about this staff. Sure, the facilities are gorgeous, clean and very professional, but it's the staff that really stands out. I called with an emergency front tooth repair and nodental insurance and they were able to work with me and the next day I have the best smile I've had in years. I look forward to my next appt, and I've never said that about dentistry. Thanks all!

The staff are professional and friendly. They make you feel comfortable right away. It started with the receptionist who took my call. She made me feel comfortable right away. After talking to her, I knew that I made the right decision.Dr. Eady checked my bridge work, even though it was installed at another practice. She alleviated my fears. I wish I could give them a higher rating.
