I’ve always had good experiences with the staff here. Today was my first visit with Chelsey as my hygienist and she was so delightful! So friendly and informative! I love that they show you pictures and explain what they’re seeing going on with your teeth so you know the best course of action when it comes to preventative.

Went in for my routine cleaning this week and my hygienist Brittney did a great job and it’s always nice to chit chat with Dr Russell. He’s personable and a great dentist! Would highly recommend this office.

I hadn't been to the dentist for many years because I did not have insurance coverage so I was dreading it. My hygienist Chelsey did a great job scaling my teeth and I was comfortable the entire time. All of the staff is friendly and welcoming and the dentists are very helpful and informative. Would highly recommend!
