The doctor, the receptionist and the girl who took X-rays of my teeth were all very friendly and information and extremely helpful. Took all the nerve out of visiting a dentist!

Araceli at reception was very kind and helped me get in for a rather urgent pain issue. I didn't have to wait long to be seen and Dr. T was very kind. She checked in with me often during my extraction which was comforting.

Very nice and straightforward person. No hype or sales pitch. Took the time to explain and diagram exactly what was needed and the possibilities that existed, i.e. the possibility of a circumstance in which the work, and thus the cost, couldbe significantly higher. If I choose to go with this doctor, I have a full understanding of what will and what could be the outcome. Since I'm still deciding whether to have the work done here, I cannot yet evaluate this doctor's performance.
