Dr. Bates is very pleasant & caring. He is exceptionally patient & understanding, showing an interest in the whole patient. His warm smile, which he is ALWAYS wearing, is one of the most reassuring things I could possibly hope to see as I look up from any dental procedure. His education, training & years of experience in all of the most current dental procedures form an excellent resume base, & his large number of longtime, returning patients (including me) support my high marks for him.

I dislike going to the dentist so much but Dr. Bates and his staff make every effort to put you at ease. I was given headphones to listen to music to help distract the noise of the drilling for my crown. They are constantly asking if you are okay during the procedure and giving you breaks to make you more comfortable. I would wholeheartedly recommend Dr. Bates and his practice for your dental needs.
