Had an over all great experience even though it's a dental office. Not a fan of dentists but the staff was professional and had a great sense of humor. Dr. Fam was pretty smooth and Sonny her assistant was funny and seemed like they cared. Prices are fair too.

So far I haven’t had any bad experience. I know my teeth is perfect and in good shape so they just can’t tell me anything about my teeth. I keep my teeth up very well. Yes I’ll recommend this dentist at the moment. They are so nice and gentle on my teeth when cleaning I really like that.

I am thoroughly impressed with my last visit for a cleaning. This wasn't the case with me previous visit. The dentist who treated me this time was meticulous and thorough--thorough to the point of including a threader for the flossing tape I use, along with other little items. I think this visit is probably the best treatment I've ever had from a dentist. I hope I'm treated by her from now on.
