Efficient and caring. The dentist doesn't have to be a literal or figurative pain. Thanks for taking care of my teeth and taking the time to explain. I've been coming here for years and I'm glad for it

Dr. Chua is very careful and caring to my overall oral health. My mouth is very sensitive and he is very careful.. I'm able to bite and chew without pain after seeing Dr. Chua. And after biting into a pork rib bone my front tooth broke and Dr. Chua fixed it no charge as it was still under warranty. Thank you very much.
