I wanted to thank you for your care and compassion during my procedures yesterday. I don’t remember leaving the dentist yesterday and didn’t have a chance to thank you in person. If (when?) I ever need sedation services at my dentist again I will certainly put my trust in you again. Thank you again! -Nathan
“I was so nervous to have my wisdom teeth taken out, I’ve had them for 18 years! I was given the option to be sedated and decided to go for it and was so glad I did. Kevin did a great job answering my questions and making me feel like I was in good hands. The extraction went great and my recovery went better than I expected! I would highly recommend getting sedated for any dental anxiety, Kevin and Cheryl are wonderful! -Samantha
I want to thank you for a very professional and pleasant experience. -Richard
