I have been going to Dr. Thorup since we were both really skinny, had dark hair, and really young kids. He is the best, and his staff is to die for good and friendly. Even most of my kids still come back to him after getting married and having families of their own. You will have a great experience! He has fixed all the bad dental work I had as a kid too, and non of his work has had to be repaired in nearly ? I wont tell you how many years now, but a lot! He is Good!
