Children Love Us, Parents Rate Us

Where do I start! I could leave a comment a paragraph long about this office. Every moment of our experience here was great. It’s fun, clean, and inviting! It was my daughter’s first dentist appointment and she left crying because she didn’t want to leave! I honestly wish this could be my dentist office. I want to play and get a token for the treasure tower too!
