in Lehighton, Pa. |
Because of bad past experiences with dentists growing up, I was terrified of them; therefore my teeth were awful and I've had to have several infected molars and now a wisdom tooth removed. Dr. Hoffman is such a sweet, patient, caring dentist who makes your experience so comfortable it's like being at a spa!!! Such a knowledgeable expert that he is. He's always so cool and calm and keeps you that way. The man's a gift to those who fear the dentist.
