Everyone at this office is so wonderful! Even before I had any work done on my teeth I had made meaningful connections with most of the staff. I was thoroughly informed about the proper care to take in the future while having my teeth cleaned, and felt better knowing what exactly was going on in my mouth. I recommend coming here for any dental related need you may have, because everyone is friendly and extremely professional. Plus, the whitening results are INCREDIBLE! 5 stars!!!!

I Went to this dental office to fix a dead tooth and I needed to have my wisdom tooth pulled. I had an amazing experience!

They are really good at making sure that you are numb during your procedure. I did not feel any pain. They fixed my dead tooth. I have an amazing new smile. They also removed my wisdom tooth I’m very very satisfied!

Just came in for my first appointment today. I have been having TMJ pain for a few years and finally decided to get it checked. Everyone in the office was extremely friendly and accommodating, immediately making me feel like I was at home. Dr. Sharma was great too and explained the treatment and everything very clearly l. I had a lot of questions and she had no problem answering all of them! It was overall a great experience and I will be returning for a teeth cleaning next!
