Competent, compassionate, and honest with reasonable rates. He's been my dentist for 36 years and I send people to him because he's the "best". You don't have to worry about unnecessary procedures because his integrity is unquestionable. My children and grandchildren go to him. He is excellent with children. Is there another dentist that gives his cell # to his patients for emergencies?
