My experience one more time was excellent. From the receptionist area all the way to the back room, Eva is my dental hygienist and the level of comfort with her it's what I was looking for, she is very gentle and attentive with my needs, the Dr. has a great patient skills communication, and this to me is priceless. I had a horrible experience with my last dentist, I am so glad that I found this great group of professionals that make every visit to their office like I am home. Thank you so much for all the care and concern for your patients, many blessings and keep it up! ;-)
