I'm a 33 year old female who was extremely scared of the dentist. I visited many dentists growing up, terrified in each visit until I came to Riverpark Dentistry. I've never laughed during a procedure, no pain, no discomfort, best experience I've ever had.
in Oxnard, CA |
My visit here was great and I wish I had been aware of this dentist and staff years ago! I sure will keep on coming!
