I was a little apprehensive about this appointment since I had not been to a dentist in quite some time. I was so impressed by the attentiveness of the entire staff. The office had all new-age equipment, and explained every singledetail of the process as we went. I left feeling very optimistic and super informed. Would definitely recommend!

Overall great experience. Secretaries were very patient with insurance information goof (100% my own fault). Hygienist was very friendly and gentle. They use a tool that, as they described, "vibrates" most of the plaque off your teeth beforethey get in there with the picks. My gums were usually sore with my old dentist, but not at all with this tool. Dr. Steckler explained everything she was looking at right in front of me and had great bedside manner. She was perceptive and picked up on a tooth I had that was built up from physical trauma (soccer accident as a kid) before I even realized I had smiled. Only negative is she pushed a night guard before asking if it's something I actually wanted. Which I don't, teeth be damned. She responds to "no" very well though and doesn't push. Highly recommended!
