Dr. Fish has put a bridge and crowns in my upper mouth and replaced filled molars in my lower mouth. The bridge in my upper mouth las lasted for over 15 years so far. I sat down and had a consultation and he gave me his recommendation and went over the issues in a straightforward manner. His staff is always friendly, courteous, and professional. That is Dr. Fish's best quality, his professionalism.

Dr. Fish is very conscientious about his work. He strives for patient satisfaction. He makes himself available to his patients. In my case, I got dental implants. My only regret is that I did not go to Dr. Fish sooner. I was so impressed with Dr. Fish's work; as well as, he and his staff's professionalism that I sent my daughter to him, and I paid Dr. Fish to do her dental implant surgery as well. We were both 100% satisfied with this dentist and his staff. I highly recommend Dr. Fish.
