Had a horrible experience at this clinic. They are more like a money making business instead of treating patients. Charged for excessive "needed" procedures that other dentists do not. The actual dentist spent less than 3 minutes talking to the patient. Avoid at all costs.

I love the staff. They are helpful and friendly. Deborah is awesome and makes the visit fun. It's like I'm visiting a friend rather than a hygienist.
