  • "The office is very modern yet comfortable, and I felt welcome right as I walked in. The technician I had was very nice, she was so energetic and seemed to really love her job. I appreciated the option to watch a movie of my choosing while in the actual dental office, and the technicians I saw seemed to be having a good time while working. The dentist, even though she came in for just a little bit, was very professional and super kind. Overall, I love this dentistry office and will definitely be coming back!"
