        The receptionist was friendly. The waiting area and bathroom were clean and well maintained. X-Ray Technician, Johnny, was quick and try to make me feel comfortable biting/holding the x-ray films as much as possible during the process. The examination found some cavities and a couple in hard to reach places. Dr. Chang was friendly and patient. She answered my questions and offered a couple of solutions for me to think about what with those 2 in the future. Meanwhile, she took care of the other cavities during the same visit.

        Dental visits tend to bring a huge amount of anxiety for me, but after two visits I feel comfortable and confident that I am going to be taken care of. From the moment I walk through the door, Im greeted with great service, while Dr Chang and the entire Dental team work like a well oiled machine and I appreciate that sense dedication.

        Great service. Made an appointment from bad tooth pain and got in for service on the same day. Called the general number and the customer service agent was extremely nice and went out of her way to help me. When I came into the office everyone was really nice and so was the dentist and dental assistants. Just a great expierence for someone like me who dreads going to the dentist. Also kudos to the office manager, she is super nice!
