Dr. Cain and his entire staff are excellent! He listens to my concerns about my dental concerns and then discusses my options and then we work about the best plan for me. I only have great recommendations for Dr. Cain. He and his staff are extremely knowledgeable and friendly.

very long wait time to get seated and to see the doctor. office is pretty but a little over the top, probably one reason his fees are so high. I felt like I was buying a car by the way they move you along to see the lady with the cost. She was very fake with her sales like approach. I won't be returning to have any work done there. Fees too high, entirely too long wait time, too pushy, seems to have one concern and that is money.....

I went to see Dr. Cain expecting to have some major surgery on my gums, but I only have to have one procedure on one tooth. Dr. Cain explained what was going on with me thoroughly. I would recommend him to anyone needing services like he provides.

I found not only Dr. Cain but his entire staff to be super professional. They did excellent work but more importantly went the extra mile to make me feel comfortable. I also like the way Dr Cain took time before and after my procedure to answer questions. I highly recommend Dr Cain and his entire office.
