I've found this dentist much more reliable and dependable than others. At one point, I drove three hours back to my home town just to go back to this dentist. They were once able to fit me into the schedule on short notice after another doctor I went to ruined my filling. The dental assistants are very friendly and will take the time to sit with you and talk. It is one of my favorite doctors to go to although of course I dislike dental visits just as much as anyone else. Book in advance, because this is a very busy practice!
