What Our Patients Say About Us

  • "Dr.Nick was very informative and actually took the time to talk to me and made my daughter feel comfortable. It was my daughters first time as a toddler so I was nervous. The nurses were so nice with her & made her feel comfortable during the process of flossing and checking all her teeth. Overall, I highly recommend this place :)"
    Angela E.
  • "Amazing dentist and staff. Not only took their time to be informative and playful with the kids but had great patience for my boys when they wanted to chat. They were respectful, fun, and even though we never felt rushed we were out the door in record time. We have been to some of the greatest pediatric dentist offices and finding a new one after moving was a bit nerve racking. So thrilled to have found this gem!"
    Tess W.

    They are also very diligent in keeping their office safe during the pandemic."
