Dr. Smith & her assistants always make Ruthy so comfortable and we never feel rushed or like we are in the way. So helpful & amazing. 6. If there was higher, we would choose it.

I have saying since he started coming to the dentist about him grinding his teeth and was told not to worry about it and to just stop him well it is hard if I dont sleep next to him to necessarily always stop him. Now that he is older and his permanent teeth are in or coming in and she commented again it does concern me because there hasnt been suggestions on what we should do or try, which I feel as the dentist this should be offered, suggested and even earlier than now this year when oh I notice you are grinding your teeth.

Nikki and Kim (hygenist) were AMAZING Adelyn was very nervous and was having a hard time relaxing for the cleaning, exam and X-rays. Both associates were incredible with her. Incredible doesnt even describe how great they were with her! They successfully got her to do a full cleaning with all the standard tools (in her past appointments they had to brush with a standard bristle brush and she wouldnt even entertain the idea of the water, etc.).

I went to this appointment worried and desperate for answers. Dr. Smith took the time to listen, was very courteous and professional and her answers put me at ease.
