I have used a number of dentists throughout the years and was never happy with the service or experience. This has come to an end with Dr. Achury and Dr. Puerta. They are both highly skilled dentists that truly care for their patients. I always know I'm in good hands with them regardless of the procedure. When I had an emergency last month, they stepped up and corrected the problem early the next day. I was back in public and able to smile without anyone ever aware of the problem. Thanks again for allowing me to smile confidently.

Dr, Achury is the best! He always makes me feel so comfortable. He tells me in detail what he is going and why,He even show me. He is always happy and pleasure to be around. The receptionist,Karen, She us such a sweetheart! he is always smiling,happy and pleasant. Great group of people. Jenny Araujo
