By far the best dentist and maybe best overall physician experience my gamily has ever had. Wish I had PAGES to tell what a great man he is, what a wonderful office he has along with a professional staff. Hands down this is the standard to which all other doctors should be measured. I wish he could also be our primary care physician and our vet! Daughter had three wisdom teeth removed. I had a dark x-ray spot checked out by him (second opinion). Just not enough room. Don't hesitate for a minute!
