Verified Patient Reviews
As a new patient, I really appreciate the kindness and professionalism I received in this office. All of the staff- dental hygienist, practitioner, and Dr. Van and his colleague treated me well and efficiently. I had a pretty bad experience with a dentist on the east coast and had never felt that way before going to him. Dr. Van assured it could be a pleasant experience. I received a solid teeth cleaning at the end, and a walk through of what would happen next and how long it would take until next appointment. Felt comfortable the whole time and this is how all doctor's appointments should go. Thank you
Dr Van and his team are awesome. So friendly, professional, and reassuring. My dental appointment was one of the best that I've ever had.
Amazing, probably my favorite dentist visit yet! They were all super reassuring and professional and didn't make me feel like I was just another bill.
Friendly, upfront and informative.
