Patient Comments (2)
Washington, DC |
She is not a good dentist. She has worked on my teeth and a couple of my other Friends, and we all have issues. She told me I have two cavities, but she didn't even explain which teeth. When I asked her, she told me one up and one down! On the day of filling them, she started from the other side, versus the side the she showed me before!! I asked about it, and she told me I checked your X-ray, and it's this side!! Her filling wasn't good either. Not going back to her....

She was very knowledgeable and professional when removing one of my wisdom teeth that had an abscess. She explained the procedure thoroughly and did not proceed until she was sure that I understand the procedure. I highly recommend her
