Since I was a new patient, one of the receptionists gave me a tour when I first got there. Then I waited for about 3 minutes before they took me back for x-rays and pictures. I only saw Dr. Hamilton fora minute, but the ladies who were treating me were very nice. I scheduled a cleaning for two days later. It would’ve been nice if they had hygienists available right then, but other than that it was a very speedy and nice process.

I returned to Dr. Hamilton because I have received only the highest quality of care from him and his office staff. I know his ability to take care of my teeth and make me feel comfortable with his bedside manner, phonecalls to check up on me in the evening, and choosing what is best for me at the time of service. I have had horrible experiences from past dentist offices and he makes me feel assured that all will be well and I will not have to endure unnecessary pain and anxiety. Thanks Dr. Hamilton and your staff again. 4/1/2016 @9:30AM

Dr Hamilton and his staff were amazingly efficient and knowledgeable. The moment I arrived at the office I was processed and taken directly to an exam room where the exam promptly started. X rays and photos were taken then the Dr came in and evaluated my mouth.
