It was good. The office did not open until 9 AM on the dot, so we waited outside for a few minutes. The doctor wasn't there when we got there either, so we had to wait. Other than the short waits, it was great.

We saw another physician and he was amazing with my 7 year old. I would definitely recommend this office. We had to wait about 45 minutes to see the DMD because their was a difficult situation but we didn't mind one bit. Customer service is important and that was their focus.

Everyghing was super fantastic the attention, the timing to be call, the doctor's patience with my daughter, since she is only 4 years old. The only inconvenient was that not all the tool and materials to be used by the doctor were set up properly. The detal assistant was calling out for every item the doctor needed and wasn't available in the room. This delayed the procedure and prolonged the anguish of my daughter. But I would give it a second try at this office because the really know how to threat a child.

PLEASE BE AWARE THIS IS A PEDRIATRIC DENTAL OFFICE. THEY DO NOT CALL AND CONFIRM WITH YOU, AND CONFIRM THAT YOU ARE AWARE THAT IT IS PEDRIATRIC OFFICE.

Not a very modern pediatric dentistry office. The X-rays don't seem digital (assistant brought out film for the doctor to look at- who does that anymore)and they don't have thyroid shields with their radiation aprons! Our children are vulnerable to radiation and they especially need Their neck covered during X-rays to protect the thyroid. Cleaning was efficient but the hygienist seemed to have trouble communicating to us in English. Please update your office with modern technology.

Our kids have seen this dentist for a few years. She's very nice and the exams are good. However the wait times are often over an hour because there's overbooking of patients. We had one of our appointments re-scheduled, then never communicated to us properly. So when we showed up the dentist had already left. This doesn't reflect well on the management of this practice.

Got there a little earlier than our appointment and was expecting it to be at least open (prepartion for the day, etc) but the clinic actually opened at 9:00 (which was our appointment schedule). But the overall experience was fine and smooth. The clinic is very child friendly with toys and movies. My daughter loved the whole experience and they took time to explain every procedure and tools being used so my daughter felt very at ease. She's already looking forward to the next check-up!
