"From my first phone call to make the appointment to the checkout counter, everyone was professional and had a personality. Dr Taylor explained the dental plan for my son. His chair-side manner was more than I could ever expected. He spoke directly to my son about his interests, hobbies, etc. Took his time and we did not feel rushed. The hygienist was gracious and kept the cleaning moving while keeping my son at ease. I would give 10 stars if I could." Lisa W. Read more Dental Reviews
