This content was provided by Dr. Dorociak A 5-Star rating falls far short of describing the outstanding care provided to patients of Dr. Dorociak. The doctor and his staff are thoroughly professional in their application of the latest technology, and they always sincerely and compassionately attend to the concerns and comfort of the patient. Treatment assistants Christine and Sandy are especially deserving of commendation for the quality of care provided to this formerly dental-phobic patient.
