    Because our infant son needed a special procedure, we were nervous. But everyone was sweet, patient, and professional with us and him. Thanks Dr. Carley and staff for your expertise!

    I have stayed with this dental practice through so many changes..but the one person who keeps my coming back is Chelsea. She is so gentle and thorough and really educates you on your dental health without making you feel like you are 12. i just had my first experience with Dr. Sugar ( her name cracks me up!) and she was lovely and gentle and explained everything she was doing. i will recommend your office to anyone looking for a great dental practice to go to. I'm hoping to get my husband, Robert in to see you to take advantage of the intro special rate and finally have some professionals who know what they are doing. I love him..but his teeth need LOTS OF HELP! I know you are up for the task! And as much as i miss seeing Cali, the two new front desk woman ( excuse me for forgetting their names) were very kind and courteous and friendly. . when you walk into an office you want to be greeted with a smile..i was greeted with TWO beautiful smiles!! Thanks for always taking good care of me best, Katie Thatcher

    After both of my previous dentists retired from practice I'm very comfortable with the new team that has taken over their office. Bravo to their choices!

    The hygienist's technique is the best. The visit before this one I felt she had a tendency to lecture me, but her communication on this visit was greatly improved. The filling replacement was top notch procedure with both dentist and assistant working very efficiently together. Great use of the latest hi tech equipment.

    My appointment was at 1:00. No one was there and the office was locked. I left work to be on time for my appointment. Another patient arrived at 1:10 and said that the office called to let them know that their appointment would be delayed until 1:15 because of a staff meeting. I arrived for my appointment at 12:55. It was 1:20 when my appointment began. If I had been called I would have missed less work time. Please call me next time. Thank you. Otherwise, I am very happy with the care I receive.

    Jeanette was the best hygienist I've ever had. She picked up on teeth that bothered me and was gentle and informative. She was friendly and made the experience pleasant. She was encouraging to help me take care of my teeth. I hope I get her next time. Of course, Dr. C. is always the best too. Favorite dentist in town, hands down
