State of the art dental practice. VERY professional, yet personable. Dental hygienist Ryan is a rock star! You can trust their recommendations and they will give you the dental advice that you need.

I have had horrible experiences with the front office and management staff. They are unprofessional and rude and very fake. I have referred friends to their office based on the Dr's ability. He's a great Dr. But I had a friend who was made an appointment 2 days ago and gets a call without being seen today that they don't want to see her and she should find a new Dr.!! I have referred at least 8 people since my bad experience but well never again refer a person to them.
