Dr. Handley is not my usual dentist. I only saw her because Dr. McClain was on vacation. For that reason, it is hard for me to offer an opinion, but she seems very nice!

Dr. Handley did an excellent job. The dental building needs some minor repair work, but I'm sure that is a work in progress

I had a root canal and crown done by Dr. Handley. Not only can I still feel the tooth but DR Handley popped a hole the original crown and had to have it re-made. When she finally put it in it hurt so bad I had to go back and have a different dentist fix it.
