        The assistants and the doctor was amazing they work quickly and efficiently. I am usually nervous about going to the dentist but they have made the experience comfortable . The assistant dena was very quick and caring she was very sweet and always comforting me when I seemed nervous. Dr. Vadi was also very cautious and comforting making sure I don't feel the procedure . Thank you for providing great service highly appreciated.

        Everyone here is very pleasant and provides a great dental experience. Dr. Vadi is very quick and gentle. She provides details as she works so you are aware of what is happening. I am sure she wouldn't if you prefer that route! It has been a very gentle and comforting experience making the dental process much more enjoyable or should I say bearable?! Give them a try and relax!
