"I have to say anyone who has anxiety with going to the dentist, this is the place to go. My cleaning was absolutely amazing and I was told step by step what was going on. Liz totally rocked!! Today I had to get a cavity filled and getting a needle in my mouth didn’t sit easy with me. Dr. Dando was amazing and I didn’t even feel the needle!! Definitely coming back for more cleanings and hopefully no more fillings but I know they will take care of me if I do."- F.N. / Google / Mar 02, 2023
