Visit was expeditious, efficient and pain free. No complaints. They keep upgrading the office: New children's play area, beverages (tea, water, coffee too I think). But the best is the ceiling panel over the treatment chair.... so relaxingto look at if you open your eyes while being examined or treated.

I wasn't a fan of constantly being "sold to" during my ENTIRE appointment. He was literally IN MY MOUTH trying to sell me on this treatment and that treatment.. Before the procedure, during and after.. It was NOT pleasant. I haveNO intention of ever going back. Not only that... it's been over 6 months since I saw him and I've gotten several $200+ bills!!!! I got a checkup and a cavity filled...and I had insurance! Very unhappy! :(
