Having severe dental anxiety I was skeptical and hesitant to have my remaining wisdom teeth removed. But when the overcrowding in my mouth became painful I knew it was time. From first contact through my appointment the staff was extremely responsive and helpful and while visiting any dentistry isn’t always the most pleasant experience, everyone I met was extremely kind and professional helping me to get through my procedure with ease and very little discomfort.
