Patient Comments (5)

She's not professional at all. She'll take you and your minor all the way through years of misery. Do not trust her. She even looks scary.

I double if any of these reviews are accurate and done by the patient. Do not fall for this trap or take your kids here. Going to her for dental work is same as stepping into a butcher shop.Do not go to her and do not fall for these 5 star reviews on her as I can reassure you none are real.

She's mental thats' the best description for this beastie. We have no respect for her as she has no respect to her children customers or their parents.

We do not recommend her for anything let alone to ruin your teeth. She has ruined my husband's teeth. She's very unpleasant to work with.
