    Very professional and conscientious of my comfort and anxiety level. Both Dr Forbes, and his staff worked very hard to ease my anxiety. Dr Forbes was very nice and I felt absolutely no pain when I had a cap done or when I had an implant placed. Their prices on an implant are better than all the other places I checked and Dr Forbes did an exceptional job. I highly recommend!

    Terrible bedside manner. He snapped at me and was ugly to his staff. This was on more than one occasion. I feel sorry for anyone who has to work with this man. I will not return!
