This was my daughter's first time at a dentist. They did a great job! Had a great waiting room, they were playing Disney movies for the kids to watch. She also had a good technique to get my daughter to cooperative. Two thumbs up!

I was worried about how my 2 year old would take the appointment, but the staff and doctor were very friendly and made the process quick and painless. The office is very inviting for children too.

This was a great experience! Dr. Island and her staff were so gentle, warm, patient, and welcoming. As we were leaving the office, my 5 year old daughter (who was nervouse about the dentist before) said, "Wow! That was a reallynice dentist! We should come here again!". The woman at the front desk was also terrific. She was very responsive and informative- I asked a few questions via email and I got a response within a matter of minutes each time. Wonderful experience!!!

Dr Gema is a true professional who take her job as a passion. Her attention to detail and her staff were excellent. They made my son and me feel safe. She explained to my son what she was going to do and answered all of his questions. She is awesome!

Beautiful brand new office! iPads for the kids to play games on, movies above them to watch. They let you go back while they are working with the child and keep you informed the entire time. Girls up front are accuratewith the insurance which always seems like a hassle. Here, it was not. Great office!
