    After not seeing a dentist for ten years, I finally HAD to see a dentist about issues. I had heard about Dr York and her staff at Community Dental. I'll admit the largest factor to selecting them was the availability of laughing gas, which greatly reduced my anxiety and the discomfort I felt during treatment. The staff are friendly, patient, and take a pace that is comfortable for me as a patient. I have now been seeing Dr. York for nearly ten years. I just hope she doesn't retire anytime soon. On occasion when I have to interact with other staff members, I get the same treatment. Kasey is my hygienist and is simply wonderful.

    Sorry I can not remember her name but the lady that cleaned my teeth did a very good job. Also Dr. York that checked my teeth before I left the Dentist office is very good at what she does. I have 100 present confidence in all that Dr. York and Dr. Elam tell me.

    All's good with the great care and coaching you get here. No fuss, no muss. If they see an area that could be a problem, they tell and show you right then what you can do to stop the potential problem and how to notice if it's helping. Not sure you want to go there, Tell the receptionist attendant that Tammi Post sent you. I've been there since 1981. What are you waiting on? Become a lifer like me. Wait until you hear about their reward incentives too. WoW
