I found Dr. Harris through zoc doc, and was so happy I gave her a chance! The woman at the front desk was very kind, and Rachel, who took the xrays of my teeth, was very kind, efficient, and very quick.Dr. Harris explained everything to me that I needed to get done with no fuss! Please go to Dr. Harris!

The staff here is very friendly, efficient, knowledgeable, and professional. I have a lot of dental issues and have been apprehensive about getting work done. Dr. Harris and the hygienist who helped me were extremely professional and warmin their approach. They explained everything and made me feel at ease. I had been seeing another dentists and figured that what he told me about a procedure was a little off. This was confirmed when I spoke with Dr. Harris. She knows what she's doing! I feel confident that I have chosen the right office.

It was a very impressive and well-run office. Coming off the elevator and approaching the door I had some skepticism. However, their space is comforting, the staff is welcoming, and the appointment, a check-up, was painless and enjoyable.

Nancy is a very competent dentist and is skilled at what she does. I've had to have three crown procedures performed over the last year on teeth that had large and older fillings. It's not a fun time, but Dr. Harrisknows what she's doing and performs the procedure well. My only issue, and this is a personal thing, is that she uses way too much Novocaine. She's so concerned about eliminating any pain during drilling, she goes way overboard on the number and location of the anesthetic injections.

Staff was very friendly, but heavy into sales/marketing. They asked me several times who I was referred by and seemed eager to sell additional services (Invisalign, etc.), aside from that the overall experience was great and I would absolutely go there again.

My first time to the dentist in about 8 years and it was amazing. Staff was very helpful, informative and made me feel super comfortable. Dr. Harris was so nice and did an amazing job on my crown. Very happy myfriends recommended her and I would highly recommend her to anyone!

She generally ignored me and gossiped with her assistant during the appointment that I had. She then started drilling my tooth before the Novocaine had kicked in, and seemed irritated by my reaction to the pain I was experiencing. After Ihad the cavity filled, I was experiencing pain and had to return for a check up. When I described my pain, she said that "I should be fine". Clearly, she was not attending to my needs and I would not return.

I was very satisfied with Dr. Harris. Her assistant Sky, was very personable and didn't have a problem answering my many questions. Of course, one thing I really, really love is not having to wait to be seen. As a newpatient, I had to fill out some paperwork but was seen as soon as my paperwork was processed.

The Dr. and staff were friendly and very professional. Every step was explained thoroughly. The office is very clean and has the latest technology. I was able to download the "new patient" forms online and complete them before my apointment;so,my wait time was @ five minutes. My appointment lasted 30 minutes and I am very happy with the result. I am confident that I made an excellent choice by choosing Dr Harris.
