Dr Stover and staff are kind and gentle. I have terrible dental anxiety but feel comfortable and safe in their care. Every step is explained before and during each procedure. I'm i sure if I screamed,"stop", they would. I have much work to be done, and fight my fear every visit. But, once there I'm confident in their skill and appreciate their caring way.
