The encouragement to continue treatment and to follow the plan laid out was remarkable. They got the buy-in from me. I have never been to a dentist office where everyone cared about you and your experience. And they took you on the journey while they were taking care of you and nobody talked at you or fussed you. This is the best dental practice I have ever been to."
