Dr. Hersey is kind and gentle. My son was frightened of the dentist when we first started going, years ago, and now at age 6 cant wait to visit! The office staff, from reception to hygienists, are wonderful. My oldest daughter broke a tooth and they offered us a same day appt. Wonderful office!

My little guy is 17 months old and I only wanted Dr. Hersey and his staff to take care of his dental exam. Other children in my family have gone to Dr. Hersey for years and have always received excellent care.
