Patient Comments (1)
in Tucson, AZ |
I changed to Dr Dixon about 3 years ago on a friend's recommendation. He wad immediately "gone" to Scottsdale for a project. There have been rotating dentist in that office for 3 years. You never know if there would be a different doctor when you made an appointment. Today I was to have some fillings with a dentist and when I was in the chair found out that it was Dr Dixon instead of the one I made the appointment with. He hurt me the first time and I was not prepared this time.

We're sorry that you had some difficulty at your appointment, we know sometimes getting dental decay treated is not always easy and we strive to make things as comfortable as can be.
