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. Mendez

He has always been professional and treated me fairly during my visits. Any issues brought to his attention were promptly handled. I only have good things to say about Dr. Cantu.
