      All of the staff are incredibly welcoming and I appreciated the time Dr. Sharon took to look over my dental history and listen to my concerns. My hygienist Jeremy was very thorough and Laura at the front desk is a welcoming face :)

Everyone in this office, from the front desk staff to the cleaners, assistants and the actual dentists make this a great choice for your dental care. They're courteous, professional, and the dentists themselves are very knowledgeable, efficient, and understanding.
