Reviews & Testimonials
"Very good service and such great people!"
"Over the top service and cleaning...Best Practice and staff.. thanks again 👍"
"Excellent visit Thanks"
"Such a great experience. I was lax in finding a new dentist after moving to the area so I needed some extra care. The whole staff was so kind and Sarah the hygienist was extremely gentle and informative. Dr Franklin is thorough and didn’t rush me into anything that I didn’t need yet. I am grateful that I got the recommendation for my new dentist."
"Excellent service, very thankful for there flexibility, also gentle and accommodating to my needs. Great job!!"
