She don’t even really get a chance to talk with you . Seem like she was rushing she stayed in the room literally 2 mins barely checked my kid teeth and that’s it . Basically the appointment isn’t with her it’s basically with the other workers.

Dr. Tanesha and the hygienist were very helpful and knowledgeable. Our 19 month old daughter was happy throughout her first dental visit. The only thing was the wait time. We were waiting for 45 minutes after our appointment time before we were called in.

Beware of bogus fees! I made an appointment for my toddler because this dentist accepts my insurance. When I arrived, the receptionist asked for payment. I explained that we are in-network and therefore did not owe a copay; our insurance covers all preventive/diagnostic and basic dental work 100%. The receptionist told me that the fee was for "Oral Hygiene Instruction." She also explained that many parents dispute this charge, and she often calls their insurance to verify that the insurance will not cover "Oral Hygiene Instruction". Of course, insurance won't cover this - - it's a bogus charge. There is no need to pay for a dentist to explain that my toddler needs to brush twice a day. This fee is disgraceful and takes advantage of parents who believe they are showing up for an appointment with an in-network dentist.

Visit went great! For a parent to go into a dental office, get great care, quick services for 2 kids at the same time and leave within 45 minutes with 2 smiling kids and ballon animals it was awesome. My boys had no cavities and no longer are fearful of the dental chair, they jump in it and open wide easily! Last visit was October 28th 2017

My review is late but I just wanted to say how pleased I was with my son's visit. #1 The place is so kid friendly which is very helpful for keeping my son entertained and at ease. This was his first visit to the dentist. Oh and they even had a little toddler door for them to go through. #2 The décor is lovely. #3 The staff was so friendly and welcoming. They answered all my questions beforehand. I will definitely be returning. I making his follow up visit as we speak.

Good front desk service, no waiting and kind treatment to a nervous 3 year old. No real cleaning was achieved, but we got the assurance of nothing being wrong except a need to start flossing. A balloon and a toy helped ease the pain of the new weird experience of strangers getting in there. Next time might go better now that he knows what to expect.

I made an appointment for a general cleaning/yearly exam and asked if they could determine whether or not my 12 yr. old needs braces. When we got there, there was immediate confusion. The dentist looked at my daughter's teeth for about 2 minutes (no x-rays) and said that she needs a sealant over her teeth. I explained that we were not here for a sealant but a cleaning and an opinion as to whether or not she needs braces. They reluctantly gave her a cleaning that lasted less than 5 minutes. I had to ask someone whether or not she had any cavities. Then they told me that they could not determine whether or not she needs braces, only an orthodontist could do that. Total time spent with dentist: 2 minutes. Total time in office: approx. 8 minutes. Plus, the staff calls all women there with their children "Mom". Could they not at least learn our names?

What a mill this place is! We took our kids out of day camp early to make this appointment, and they kept us waiting for over an hour and twenty minutes. The waiting room was a madhouse of screaming kids and their frustrated parents, all complaining about the wait time. The receptionist said they were a person short and that late afternoons are the worst, in any case, and it sure seemed that extensive waits were par for the course here. When we finally were seen, one hygienist was cordial but not particularly adept at handling a toddler who'd never been to the dentist before (she eventually gave up without even doing a cleaning), and the other hygienist "cleaned" our older kid's teeth in about five minutes flat. Dr. Francis herself was very nice and assured us that what we thought might have been a chipped tooth was not a problem, but she spent all of a minute with each kid, simply saying that "everything looks fine." I guess that's good, but everything was so rushed and chaotic that it's hard to know if they really got a good look. We did some back-of-the-envelope math on this place, and the dentist must be making an absolute fortune with this practice, certainly enough to hire additional staff to relieve the two major problems: 1. The torturous wait time, and 2. The lack of time they spend with each kid. If Dr. Francis herself had not been so warm, I'd say avoid this place at all costs, but she was so pleasant that I'm wondering if maybe this place is great on a less busy day. We might give it one more try . . . with an early morning appointment so they won't yet have a chance to be so backed up.

Wait was a bit long with a 2year old, but once taken it staff was very friendly and moved quickly. Tanesha herself was super professional and sweet to my son. She gave off a very good vibe and made my son relax with a balloon and high five after his first dentist appointment. I would recommend to friend/family.

everything was good. I think the doctor was a lil bit rude when I ask a question about my son. I came back 2 weeks later for my son's procedure I wish it was more explanatory. Front desk was very polite and place is beautiful and clean.....and very fast.

The office decor is nice and the back area where you get treatment also is a nice set up. Besides that the Dr saw my child for 3 minutes and I'm stretching it. Everything was rush rush the Dr didn't interact with my child who is the patient. If you are going to overbook the appointments take at least 10 minutes with each patient.
