I have been a patient here for just shy of a year now. After my first phone call to inquire about becoming a new patient, I felt very comfortable and welcome. Big points, not only were they accepting new patients, butI was able to make an appoitment for 2 days after. Everyone is always friendly, attentive, and provide a very clean office.

I went to her office for consultation about what procedures are required to repair my upper and lower dental prosthesis. She advised me on the process needed for dental surgery and rebuilding or remaking both of the dentures. I was quitesurprised to find very lengthy stairs had to be climbed to the next floor and access to the office and exam rooms. I have physical disabilities and the stairs are daunting. I was given assistance by Cristia Flemings, Office Manager. I was also adviced to seek further dental treatment at another one of their offices which is located on the ground floor.

It's was so great! From the scheduling on the phone, to getting updates via email and text, the whole customer experience was top notch. When I got to the office the staff greeted me by name, took care of all ofmy insurance needs, and even did a quick price check to see what further treatments would cost. I went in for a basic cleaning. It was quick, efficient, and I felt very comfortable in Dr. Harvey's hands. I would highly recommend this practice to anyone looking for a great Dentist!

It was my first time visiting this office from a referral from my original dentist, and I think everyone was very personable, warm, and friendly. Ms. Harvey and her assistant help in quelling my nervousness and anxiety, so I appreciate themfor that. I would definitely recommend them to other patients who are seeking quality dental care, and a long-term dentist.

listen, if you want to get your teeth xrayed, poked, cleaned, scraped, filled by a super nice staff- this is the place to be. I honestly felt like i was just chillin with my peeps, and it just so happened theywere working on my teeth. We talked soccer, superbowl, and even career aspirations. Listened to some PYT by MJ, it was wonderful. Plus I had to go back in for a just-in-case and they fixed me right up in like 5 mins. + no wait + goodie bag + Cristina and Madana are so personable and friendly, phenomenal bedside manner + clean + welcoming - i felt TOO at home, i wanted to keep going back to hang out.

The cleaning was quick and easy. She told me what she was doing before she started and during which was comforting. She was gentle and asked if I was comfortable throughout. The only thing I found odd was that she startedtalking to the hygienist about how the hiring for a new dental assistant was going and talked about her old office and the problems they faced. I found it somewhat unprofessional to have a business discussion in front of a patient.

She was extremely friendly and professional. Like, I felt like i was in the hands of a very trusted college friend, who also happened to be a skilled dentist. Her staff member (Cristina?) was also very warm and accommodating. I feltright at home, and all the scary dentist stuff (drills, picks, xrays, cavities) felt less worrisome.
