I have a lot of anxiety due to bad past dental experiences, but the doctor was patient and informative. She took the time to explain everything to me and was gentle ans responsive. Also - it may seem like a smallthing, but being able to select a program from Netflix to watch with headphones during the procedure helped so much! Will definitely return and recommend.
