I had an excellence first consultation. I had high anxiety and they dipped my hands in the Paraffin wax and then put a warm neck pillow on my neck. It helped ease me a little. All the techs who worked onme were very nice and talked me through everything. Not once did they seem annoyed. Dr. Salartash explained everything to me and even though it wasn't great news she eased my worry. Another lady walked me through all of my other questions and was beyond helpful . By the end of the visit my husband decided to switch dentist.

Really great first impression. Both Dr. Salartash and the Assistant Mary were really nice and really took the time with the treatment. The office has several complementary options which were nice. Definitely a modern office with up to datetechnology and great service. I'm having follow up treatments which I hope are just as good of an experience.
