"To make a long story short, my filling fell out last week and today I got something stuck in it. Frantically, I called dentist all over town. The first time I called they were unable to squeeze me in, but after about an hour of searching, I had my husband call back. They agreed to see me because of my situation. When I got there, I told them I was paying cash, so I suspected that they would want me to prepay (my normal dentist always does even though I have spent thousands with them, and always pay my bill). However, they weren't pushy about money, which is refreshing. The staff was very friendly, and the dentist took care of my filling. I have problems going all the way numb, and the dentist made sure I was all the way numb before starting my filling. For me to be an emergency squeeze in, I was able to get out of there quickly. I would recommend this office to anyone. I plan on making this my regular office."- K.A. / Google / Oct 16, 2017
