    I am terribly afraid of the dentist. My last dental experience was a double root canal and I was so unhappy with the office staff and- for lack of a better word- "ghetto" office, that I did not return for the completion of my treatment. I was very relieved when I walked into Dr. Kernagis' office at how clean and inviting it was, how friendly the staff was, and how calm, kind and gentle Dr. Kernagis and his assistant were. Everything about my visit really put me at ease and I will be returning for the completion of my treatment, as well as regular cleanings!

    Little problem with downloading NP paperwork, but got to appt. early to fill out. Otherwise, everything's fine. Didn't try to sell me anything I didn't want. Doctor complimented me on good oral care. Staff very empathetic.
