Had serious pain and was able to get appt. Next day. Professional staff and doctor explained everything that was being done and suggestions made for future plan.

Have been going to the Smile Zone for sometime now. Always pleasant staff, and I am always comfortable in the chair.

Great place to visit for all your dental needs. I have been a patient there for many years and have always had a positive experience.
