Dr. Hiksh is the best dentist i have ever known. She is simply a perfectionist - making sure that everything she does is just perfect (if it is a simple filling or a major restorative work). She lives and breathes "dentistry" (able to recognize her patients by the molds of their teeth, remembering patient's conditions without looking at the chart, flossing your teeth when she waits for the anesthetic to kick in - which other dentist does it???? etc) . My guess is that people who wrote negative comments about her - never truly sat in the chair in her office or got offended simply because she told them TRUTH. She would not ignore even a single tiny cavity, or would tell you if your previous dentist did "not such a perfect job". If they would have had anything done by her they would be smiling wide - and their teeth would be perfec! p.s There are number of people driving/flying from other states just to see her.
