This is the second time in the last year we have been to Dr. Nawiesniak's office. The first time we needed a new dentist so we saw Dr. Nawiesniak who was very kind and took very good care of Liberty. Liberty was in today for a dental cleaning. The Dental Hygienist was very kind and thoughtful explaining to her about the proper way to floss and brush. Couldn't ask for anyone to be any better to Liberty. We highly recommend this office for any of your dental needs. Faye West
