Testimonial 1

I have not been to a dentist in quite a few years because of a horrible experience. My boss recommended Dr. Z and told me he was the best. When I walked into the office, the front desk people were very friendly and I knew this would be a great experience. Pam took great care of me to make sure I was comfortable throughout this appointment. Dr. Z came in and introduced himself and he was very friendly. Neither Pam nor Dr. Z Made me feel badly for not seeing a dentist sooner. I wasn't hesitant about making my next appointment. I am going to refer anyone who asks if I know a good dentist!
