The experience was great! The full staff was super friendly and helpful, and willing to work with you on payment plans and options (even as a new patient). I really appreciated their willingness to give me the full range of considerationsfor my treatment plan and the obvious care that's being taken to ensure that all goes well during my time as a patient.

Excellent Appt. Wait time was minimal, although Dr. Taliwal did have other patients in the office. She saw me within about 15 minutes, including the new patient intake and having photos of my teeth taken by her assistant. She was pleasant,knowledgeable and patient in answering all my questions. Also, I walked out within an hour and a half with a course of action determined in terms of my treatment, all xrays and scans completed and all financial aspects all worked out, including my insurance coverage. Efficiency was A++. I haven't yet been treated so will update at some point regarding my ortho, however, the appt was excellent.

This office is great! Dr. Tailwal is so nice and knowledgeable and makes everything a lot easier for me. (I am not the best patient!) The front office is friendly and very accommodating. I have never had to wait and theyhave been willing to move things around to better fit my schedule. I highly recommend this practice!
