Burnsville, MN |
Dr. Simmons took great care of our whole family. Excellent customer service from the moment we walked in the door (or even picked up the phone to schedule our appointments!) Very calm atmosphere. The first dentist/hygienist experience where I never felt guilty/embarrassed for a moment. Gentle cleanings, and great service.
Farmington, MN |
Dr Simmons is very experienced and skilled in all types of dental care. You don't have to go somewhere else to see a specialist. He always recommends the right thing for me and I know that he's thinking of my health and plans my care so that I have teeth for the rest of my life. He's the absolute best!
