“We had a fantastic first visit to the dentist today. Everyone was SO patient and wonderful with my son, and I couldn’t be happier with the entire team. I was a little nervous going into this (it was his first visit to the dentist ever), but I was put at ease from the minute I walked in. I cannot say enough good things about this office!”

“I took my two sons (3 and 5) for a general check up with Dr. Shiva and we had a wonderful experience. First, the practice is very pleasant and kids friendly. Dr. Shiva was gentle and took the time to explain the process and did a great job fairly quickly. My boys really enjoyed their experience and we will definitely go back.”
