What Our Clients Say About Us

    Recent visit went smoothly. Offiice takes proper precautions to safeguard health.

    Xochi (06/12/2021)

    This is the best experience and teeth cleaning I've had in 40 years of going to the dentist. The Hygienist was exceptional and very thorough. I almost can't wait to go back and have my teeth cleaned again.

    Anonymous (05/19/2021)

    The staff here are wonderful, caring people who actually listen to patients and explain everything thoroughly. Dr Ford took his time and performed a thorough exam then discussed my options with me. The dental hygienist was one of the best I have seen. Kudos to the entire staff for their customer service and expertise.

    David (07/24/2021)

    Extremely kind employees that are great at what they do! Highly recommend!

    Alexis A (09/10/2021)

    Really great group of people that care for my smile. From the moment I walked in the door, the friendly crew at the desk greeted me, the fantastic hygienist cleaned my teeth and kept me entertained so I didn't dwell on my teeth being cleaned, and the dentist made sure my teeth were good. I always leave feeling like I was important to them.

    Patty T (08/11/2021)

    Very knowledgeable, friendly & efficient!! So glad I found them!!

    Cissy E (10/18/2021)

    My excellent patient service started with the first phone call. The entire staff are amazing and made me feel comfortable immediately. This was by far the most thorough cleaning and exam that I have ever had. It can be intimidating to find a new doctor under any circumstances but this staff made me feel as if I had been there for years. All of us have a chance to make a difference in someone's life and this staff made a difference in my life! Thank you all!!!

    Barbara W (01/21/2022)

    The ladies in the office are so nice and fully explained everything-insurance, billing, etc. Dr. Donaghey was great. He listened, explained my treatment plan, and put me at ease. This is my new dentist office and I would recommend them to anyone.
