Dr James is caring, compassionate and always on time. He is full of knowledge about many things and always has a good story to tell. His numbing injections don’t hurt and he’s very gentle on the mouth. I love his office staff. They are friendly and always accommodating. My dental hygienist is the best. extremely thorough! Believe it or not, I look forward to my dental visits, whether it’s a cleaning or a filling. I highly recommend Dr. James the Dentist for all your dental needs??

I was not a patient of Dr James until I called in extreme pain and needed immediate care. The receptionist was so professional and truly concerned about my needs. She informed me that she would do her best to fit me into a very full schedule. She called back in less than 10 minutes to inform me the Doctor would see me in an hour. Dr James spent over an hour working on my impacted tooth. He could not finish my root canal that day due to the extent of the infection but set me up four days later to complete the treatment! I am totally satisfied and recommend this office, staff and Dr James for all who need a caring, professional Dentist. Thank you all!

I’ve been seeing Dr. James for years now, and would highly recommend him to anybody. He has done both necessary dental work, as well as cosmetic dental work on my teeth, and I’ve consistently been more than happy with the results. I feel as though he truly takes his time to ensure the best quality of work possible!

I have been getting work done for about for years now from 2016-2019, with several cavities and crowns. I continue to return for my dental needs because I never have to wait past my appointment time, the work gets done very fast and efficiently without pain or discomfort. I trust Dr. James work. The staff is professional and very friendly.

Not the best dentist visit. He needs improvement in addressing dental challenges with his clients. Although not disrespectful, our discussion about a potential challenge to a particular filling procedure resulted in me feeling guilty for what he thought I insisted that he do this filling when in fact I never insisted anything. I would not recommend this dentist to anyone.

Dr James is the first dentist I have visited more than once in 30+ years. He talks you very calmly through what he's doing and my visits are as enjoyable as a dentist appointment can be. His staff is welcoming.

Dr James and his staff are friendly, professional and highly skilled. I needed a rootcanal, bridge replacement and a new denture. Dr James listened carefully to my needs and never pushed me into doing anything I did not want. The office is well organized and all work together as a team. I am a nurse practitioner amd am very picky about any health services I need. I am glad I found him, and, you will be too.

Having had extensive dental work by Dr. James and his staff including extractions two surgery's and dentures. I cannot thank Dr. James and his staff enough. My appointments were met on time [no waiting]. Each procedure was explained in a manor any one would understand. Procedures were pain free with little discomfort after surgery. Dr. James and his staff go over and above to make one at ease and comfortable during the process. I would recommend Dr. James to anyone for excellent dental care. ***

You can say I am e re-born dentist goer. Due to very bad experience I didn't see a dentist for years. Dr. James took my fear immediately. He is very friendly, calm and confident. He did a couple root canals and fillings and several crowns. I didn't feel a thing, Every visit I was in and out within an hour. No pain and even discomfort on a scale from 1-10 was maybe a 3. I am looking forward to get the rest of my procedures done.
