I have been going to this dental site for over 50 years. I have always received excellent dental care. The dentists and other staff have changed over the years and the office has been updated but the same quality of care has always been there. Everyone is always friendly and helpful and you feel very welcom when you walk through the door. I would recommend this office to everyone.
