This is my 4th child to have dental work and we LOVE this practice. We had work done elsewhere and had a poor experience. Bankhead, Rodabaugh and Oldroyd help fix what was still wrong and the smiles are great - from mom and dad too:)

We are on child 2 and have had only positive experiences. All Drs and staff have been caring and gentle with the while process. They are very willing to work with us on appointments & billing, as well as any other things that come up. I wouldn't recommend anywhere else!
