Julia is the best dental hygienist! She made me feel very comfortable. She’s friendly, professional and knowledgeable. My teeth felt super clean and smooth after. I highly recommend her!

For 14 years I have neglected check ups. In one cleaning, Julia has changed how my mouth feels, tastes, enjoys and also taught me how to proper take care of the calcium shells. I’m healthier. I’m happier. I’m hopeful that I can keep these mouth stones for longer than I am intended to! Don’t be scared. It’s worth investing in yourself.

Love the staff here and the dentist/dental assistants are always so courteous and helpful. They also provide a television/Netflix for you to watch while you are having a procedure done, this is very helpful, if like me, you get nervous with dental work.
