I have been going to Dr. Pace for more than 2 years now. I went to him because I had heard that he is gentle and good with nervous patients. I've always been afraid to go to the dentist, and as a result, on my first visit my teeth had been neglected for a few years and needed some extra attention and cleaning, etc. Dr. Pace and his staff were extremely patient with me, even though I was really nervous. When it turned out that I had a loose filling that needed replacing, Dr. Pace and the hygienist were understanding of my fears and helped calm me down, and then the actual process was much quicker and easier than I had been afraid of.
