I had a lot of anxiety about having to get my tooth pulled. Mimi made me feel so safe. She was so kind. Dr Alpha was so gentle. The Twilight they used was top shelf! I would give them 10 stars!

Patient Review By Else W

I went in for an extraction, they took such great care of me. They were very informative from start to finish, I felt very secure in their care. I had an oral injection to numb the area, after the medicine wore off I had no swelling what so ever nor pain. It was just beautifully done all around. Great place and staff! CHEERS to you ALL!!! Many Thanks!
