I Found So Much Relief

“I saw Dr. Dovidio for a second opinion. And while she did confirm what the original dentist told me about the problem tooth, she also quickly fixed another problem with a different tooth, a problem that I had been living with for 3 years. I found so much relief after my visit with her. She was very gentle. She has up-to-date equipment and everything is so clean. I will come back to Dr. Dovidio, and my family as well.” ~Linda Vickers

A True Health CARE Professional

“Before meeting Dr. Josie Dovidio our daughter was incredibly afraid of going to the Dentist. Dr Josie has transformed a major fear into something fun for the kids. Our entire family feels very blessed that we have found a dentist that is a true health CARE professional. Dr. Dovidio takes the time to really listen to your needs and is particularly sensitive to any concerns we have. We know how lucky we are to have found such an incredible Dentist. Who would of thought~ going to the dentist could be “FUN” but it is w/Dr Josie”. You will LOVE HER like we all do!” ~The Kennedy Family

The Answer To Any Patient's Dreams!

“Dr. Josie is the answer to any patient’s dreams! When both my husband and I needed to have prolonged dental work, we were cautious about connecting with the best dentist to help us through multiple procedures. Dr. Josie exceeded all our expectations and built a lasting trust from the first day. As a dentist, she is extremely talented, knowledgeable and is highly adept at handling complex procedures. Dr. Josie’s level of professionalism is a cut above the rest. Her office environment is open, friendly and always immaculate. As a human being who demonstrates real caring for her patients…Dr. Josie is a stand out. Thank you, Dr. Josie, for all your help now and in the future!” ~Giselle and Greg H.

My Friends Are Switching Over

“I always appreciate how you make Ty feel at ease. You always take the few minutes to explain what you’re doing, with what tools, etc. This really seems to help him, as he has a need for the most information he can possibly have. It seems to comfort him. In fact I have been telling some of my friends about that and they said they always wished their dentist did that when they were little, so they’re switching over.” ~Angie Johnson
