Dr. Michael and his staff are simply wonderful with the kids and parents as well. I especially love the fact that when he is done working on the kids he comes out to give the parents a nice briefing of what is going on with the kids teeth. I have four kids and wouldn't trust anyone else as their dentist. I really feel comfortable with him and his staff and have no problem letting him take care of my children. The waiting room is very kid friendly with a little play area and the wonderful maps of the world painted on the walls.
