WHAT PEOPLE ARE SAYING!
“We Love to come visit our Dentist!! My kids actually look forward to the visit and when it gets close, they count down the days! They are very proud of their nice white shiny teeth, and we thanks the staff for being so friendly and loving towards children!”
“At my daughter’s recent appointment (age 4), they were quite willing to get us in early when we were able to be at the office before her appointment time (almost 1 hour before actual appointment time). Due to this, we were able to get home early, which is a big deal when you live almost 1 1/2 hours from the dentist!”
“My son had his normal scheduled cleaning yesterday and he was EXCITED when he got in the car after school because he loves going to the dentist. They take him back to clean his teeth alone which makes him feel very grown up! They actually brought him back five minutes before his visit and the cleaning was completed quickly and efficiently. Dr. Portwood is fabulous as well as her assistant! I would recommend the office to anyone and everyone! Thank you for taking care of my son!”
