The epitome of modern dentistry, friendly, fast, efficient, and painless . Great staff, Amy in finance, Dr. Schaeffer, and dental assistant Deana were very friendly and helpful. All and all a great experience.
My husband and I had a wonderful experience during our first check up and cleaning of our teeth. Very professional and detail oriented. We are excited and happy to be part of this dental group.
Everyone was so nice and helpful with all the dental care and billing information They make it so easy for us. Thank you so much!
Many years ago, after receiving intolerable and painfully substandard dental work from a competing office in the same area of town, I became literally panicked to get future care from any dentist. Then when things could not be put off any longer, I mustered up courage to set an appointment with a dental office that I had heard, had great personal service. To my amazement, they were able to calm my fears and expertly take care of my dental challenges with no problem. Needless to say, this was a great relief to me and preventative care is now back in my life. 🙂
No waiting, and the staff were friendly and professional. They have never tried to sell me work I didn’t need nor lie to me. This place is a rare gem among dentist offices.
Treated like an old friend! Love everyone there and have confidence in their work.
I’m not to fond of going to the dentist but all the staff there are AMAZING. The dentist talked me through my procedure and made me feel really comfortable.
Everyone at the front desk, the doctor and the rest of the staff were extremely friendly, professional, helpful and caring. I really felt comfortable being in your office. Thank you for making a dental office experience as pleasurable as possible.
