what our patients say

"I visited this office for the first time today. From the front office staff to the end of my apt with a referral needed, I was blown away by their kindness.
My dental hygienist, Ersela, "like the sea creature with an E" was outstanding. She made sure I was comfortable and basically went above and beyond the whole time I was there.
Dr. Erwin was very professional and explained all my options to me in detail. I highly recommend this dental office. Excellent service!"

"Dr. Lovelace is awesome! My son saw her first for a cavity and then when i went in, during my cleaning she had to fix a chip in my front tooth. Not only did she fix it, I can't tell you enough how awesome she is!"
