Dr. Higgins is a very competent. I needed a filling replaced and I did not have a local dentist so a friend referred me. Dr. Higgins staff were able to fit me in the same day I called. It was an old amalgam filling and after talking with Dr. Higgins I had him replace it with a white composite filling. He did a good job and the visit was not unpleasant, as far as a dentist goes anyway. I urge anyone looking for a dentist to give Dr. Higgins a try.
