I have serious issues with going to the dentist. Broke a tooth end of Dec, 2010 and agony forced me to go this SUMMER. Yep, I'm a genuine dental phobe. It was either that or a firecracker in my mouth. Dr. Claypoole clearly understood my anxiety, provided a gentle exam and offered sound guidance/treatment. I actually went back. I also scheduled another appointment for work that needs to be done. I can't believe I am typing this but it's the truth. Good guy and friendly office. Highly recommended.
