Reviews & Testimonials
"Dr. Franklin and staff are dentistry rockstars!"
"Dr. Franklin and staff are dentistry rockstars! I've been seeing Dr. Franklin for 3-4 years now and I can't express how fantastic they have been to me! I have never had anyone be less than polite even when I was in pain and not so polite myself. Dr. Franklin has done several root canals on my teeth and every time I drift off! (Very embarrassing) Their practice is clean, quiet and comfortable with some decent music selections. (Depending on who's choice it is that morning!) Sometimes I have felt more like I'm hanging out then getting a root canal! But please, don't go here; I don't want it to be more difficult to get an appointment!!!"
"I have been a patient here for 20+ years and have always had a positive experience. Mark Franklin DDS and the office staff knock it out of the park when it comes to appointments, billing and especially when in the dental chair. I highly recommend them as a great choice for dentistry."
"Friendly professional staff. I’ve been there several times and they always bring me back at my scheduled time with no waiting."
"Dr. Franklin has always kept great track of my teeth. Jody is gentle, sufficient, as well as amicable. I am happy to have her as my dental hygienist."
