Harper is only 4, and as her parent, I did not even see her dentist when I was there, only the hygieniest that relayed information to me before and after the appointment, so this is hard to rate the dentist.
She didnt come out to speak with me. Just applied the treatment for my kid in another room were I wasnt allowed in it.
Dentist explained the treatment verbally. I wanted to see thexray and the treatment to be explained on it, so I know which teeth will receive a crown vs filling. That didnt happen and I go to next appointment blindly to what my kid treatment will be. Its frustrating.
The dentist was fantastic. She really helped my daughter feel comfortable!!
All of the hygienists and the doctor were so amazing. My daughter was having a full blown mental breakdown and they were all so patient with her. I was so stressed out about the whole ordeal, but they made the experience so much less stressful for me, and the assured me everything was okay. I really appreciate the way they took care of me and my kiddos that day. They had an opportunity to either make or break my day and they 100% made it. I cant say thank you enough.
Always do a good job
Was a great experience. Everything was explained really well.
Dr. Smith is wonderful! She took the time to fit in tooth extractions at a routing cleaning visit so our daughter may move forward with orthodontic treatment. She was very compassionate and handled my daughters anxiety like a true professional. Thank you to her and her team!
Dr . Smith is always very friendly. Answered my questions without hesitation.
