Patient Testimonials

This content was provided by Dr. Skaalen "I recently moved here to Scottsdale and went to Dr. Skaalen. I'm so happy he is so professional, honest, and does not try to up sell you. My old dentist told me I needed a root canal. Dr. Skaalen said he didn't see an infection and fixed the tooth. It doesn't hurt anymore. He's super honest. He's my new dentist for sure!"
