    Explained treatment
    I had an emergency situation: lost 3 fillings. Just recently moved to the area, did not know any dental offices, besides once it comes to dentists, I am a bit untrusting. I asked 1-800-Dentist to refer me someone. I was really grateful for the assistance I got, that they not only referred me to an office but set up an appointment for me! Dr. Snow and his stuff made me feel welcomed from the moment I walked in. Dr. Snow took care of the initial problem: replaced the fillings. He did more than that: shaped some old fillings and fixed a cavity which he found. Sue, the office manager checked my insurance coverage right away, so I was happy to find out that during my visit I could afford some extra things done : cleaning, Xrays and whitening. The hygienist was ready and available for me right than and there, I did not have to make an other appointment and wait weeks to have my teeth cleaned! So I went in with an emergency situation, and left with a much improved smile with a very positive experience.

    Wisdom tooth pain needed immediate analysis. Dr. Snow's office was ready to offer an appointment right away. Treatment plan was reviewed and plan of action was determined immediately. Couldn't have asked for a more comfortable result.
