"This is probably one of the best experiences I’ve ever had at a dentist office. Hanna was polite and sweet. She went above and beyond to help my mother and I. In all honesty you don’t find people like her anymore. The staff that answered the phone was polite and helpful and I would recommend this office to anyone."
