Dr. Comfort has been our family dentist for a few years now. We appreciate his high level of dentistry and his way of making us all feel like we're in good hands. My teenagers and young son enjoy going to the dentist now because they love Dr. Comfort and his staff.

I had the worst dentist experience of my life here. The front desk personnel were rude from the moment I walked in. The dentist told me I needed a root canal and quoted me around $2000. I went and got a second opinion and was told that I did not need a root canal and that my tooth was fine. They refused to send my records to my new dentist, even when I requested them multiple times, including by email with a signed form attached. I specifically asked them to email my records to my new dentist an

I went in to have 3 cavities filled. I asked the staff if they could just do the multi surface $204 and 1 of the single surface $165 to save up $ for the tiny 3rd. Instead he did the two tiny single surface cavities. I expressed my disappointment at the time in him not doing the multi-surface cavity, as that was the whole reason for my appointment. I asked him to just do the 3rd at the time. He refused due to time constraints and he felt I couldn't make that decision on Halicon. No follow up

My experience with Dr. Comfort was very positive. I went in for a second opinion and ended up as his new patient. I look forward to receiving his professional services in the near future.
Dr. Comfort is the best. He made me feel so taken care of. He stays true to his name! ;) His staff was very pleasant and knowledgable.
Professional, high tech. The text message confirmations and reminders alone are great!
