I had the best experience here. They were very professional and the new practice manager, Fausto, even came out, introduced himself, and explained everything very thoroughly. They were fast at checking me in and there was no wait time before I saw the dentist.

Today at around 11 am I called in requesting an appt to be seen for an exam if possible (same day appt) . I was offered a 12 PM & 3 PM appt. I chose the 3 PM appt and was seen rather quickly when I arrived. There were some technical difficulties with my dental insurance and everyone was amazing enough to wait while the matter was resolved. The service was amazing and I really appreciate the way I was treated by everyone I can in contact with. I am horrible at remembering a group of names but they know who they are :) . From the moment I called to the moment I left I received great patient care. Thank you

I have been a patient at this office for about two years now. Overall, I have had nothing but good experiences at this location. Although I only visit the dentist when I have an issue, I always leave satisfied with the results and most importantly pain free. Special shoutout to Sandra, she always makes sure her patients are as comfortable as possible, and actually takes the time to ensure the job is done right. Her professionalism does not go unnoticed, and it is appreciated.
