Jeff Dodson is a fantastic dentist that I have visited for over 10 years. He stays absolutly up to date with the newest dental techology and techniques, and has years and years (decades?) of experience that result in very carefull and nearly pain-free work.
In addition, he has a pleasant chair side attitude and is a really friendly, soothing, competent guy who listens carefully and responds throughly.
The only downside is that his work seems to be a little bit more expensive than some other dentists, but in all my years with him I have never developed a fear/dislike of going to the dentist, and that alone is worth the slightly greater cost to me.
