They are a family practice that is family owned. Just the nicest folks on earth. They will take all the time YOU NEED.

"overall, a good experience. The only thing that bothered me was the number of x-rays taken and the cost because of that. I had not taken x-rays in quite some time and 6 months ago, was told I should consider having bite wing x-rays taken. I would guess at least 10 x-rays were taken and I joked that it's 1 x-ray for each tooth I have, since I have upper and lower partials. It seemed excessive. Otherwise, she was great."

"It's alway a joy to come in and get my teeth cleaned. Just ask Ronda how she loves doing my teeth. Especially when my lower lip has a mind of it's own and does whatever it wants to do even though she tells my lip to relax. Sorry, I really do try to relax. See you again in 6 months."
"Great people who really care"
