What do clients have to say about you?

After having a terrible experience with another dentist in the city, I was afraid to go to a new dentist. But after reading lots of reviews I decided I might as well see how it goes. The office is brand new, very clean, and just so nice compared to other dentists I have been too. The entire staff, from reception to the dentists themselves are very pleasant and warm. They ask you if you want to listen to a specific type of music, I believe on pandora or if you'd like to watch something on Netflix while you are having your cleanings, which is something I've never been offered anywhere else. I have had two different dental hygienists and each were very warm and welcoming, they really take into consideration people are uncomfortable when they come to the dentist and try to make that a lot easier. Every cleaning has been very pleasant, they check in with you to make sure you are not in any pain. The dentists and hygienists seem to have good relationships and great communication about your needs. Overall this dentist group is one of the finest I've been to, the staff are all very friendly, and the office it's self is very clean. I would highly recommend to anyone looking for a new dentist.
