I have always had a fear of dentists so you cam imagine my anxiety when I learned I had to have wisdom teeth removed. The staff and Dr did an amazing job of making me feel at ease and comfortable. I had a great experience from the time I walked in for the initial consult to the time I walked out the door after having my teeth extracted. I will not hesitate to come back!
