"I had a bad experience at Day & Night Dental a few weeks back and decided I wasn’t going to go back. I decided to give Dental Works a try and I am so glad I did! Saying I was impressed by my visit earlier today is an understatement! I had to have a tooth extracted and the dentist I saw was so caring & gentle and very thorough in explaining every step of what the extraction would entail. Her assistant was so friendly and knowledgeable as well. They were an awesome team! I have quite a bit of work I still need done and I’m thrilled to have found this place. My only regret was not getting the Dentist & Assistant’s names so I could post them here. Thanks guys for a wonderful experience!"- A.G. / Google / Jun 19, 2018
"I cannot say enough good things about my experience here. I have avoided the dentist the past few years and was terrified to go but knew it was time. Paula, Angie and Dr. Mary were kind, professional, and extremely knowledgeable. I will actually look forward to going to the dentist (something I thought I would never say) after my experience with these professionals!"- K.K. / Yelp / Jun 18, 2018
