This dentist runs the office alone - no associate just a staff of friendly people. There is no one who knows her work better. She advertises personalized dental planning and with it comes custom work. No ripping out teeth and fitting you with dentures, she cares about what the long term outcome is. Receptionist is exceptionally friendly and motherly. There is a pleasant surrounding with refreshments at a wet bar area. Just like home. Good magazines and a small area for young children. A+ to this dentist.
