Review for Dr. Akanbi

Amazing! He is the most kind, caring doctor. He has gone above and beyond to make sure all my questions and concerns were taken care of and that I felt comfortable every step of the way. He is more then just a phenomenal doctor, he is a wonderful person.

Review for Dr. Selim

We have been very impressed with Dr. Sanders and his team. The office is so fun and inviting for the kids. Both my 3 year old and my 8 year old are EXCITED to go to the dentist. They explain things well, and are patient with the kids if they are nervous for a procedure. We highly recommend!

Review for Dr. Sanders

DO NOT LET THIS MAN TOUCH YOU!! He is not qualified to do surgery. After doing surgery for a torn ligament he completely botched it and sewed nerves into it causing extreme pain. After going to another doctor they found his mistake that required addition surgery and permanent nerve damage.
