While everyone did fantastic, Dr. Sarmicanic in particular was amazing. She understood my phobic level that kept me from visiting a dentist for 35+ years. She explained everything I was going to go through and emphasized my comfort throughout the entire procedure. I can't imagine having a better dentist for what I needed in this situation.

Erin the hygienist was exceptional. . She not only did a great job with my cleaning, but really made every effort to make sure that my visit was great. Very friendly and caring. My dentist is also excellent. Really cares about my teeth and care. Answers all questions and concerns.

Need to be more sensitive to the customers financial situation. shorten the wait time for the dentist. Provide better treatment as far as bridges and caps. Make sure the cement is quality and wont ware off. Making the customer come back several times. Shows bad service.

Denise is my hygienist and is absolutely amazing. Her people skills are awesome, she encourages you to be diligent about dental hygiene and she speaks from the heart and treats you like a longtime friend. Also, Christine the lady that does billing aka office manager, is above and beyond professional and handles issues in a professional manner. I had an issue with bad dental. After not returning for a year, she made the situation right and left with a Candlewood Smile :). One more thing, Vanessa, the receptionist, may need more training. She's nice, friendly, but doesn't always have the answers questions. I asked about insurance discounts on two visits and she couldn't answer it. The other day, I nicely demanded an answer and appeared she didn't know how to find an answer. Long story short, 2 other ladies chimed in with the correct answer. Im an optimist and know she'll improve once she learns how to retrieve insurance info. That's it for now, I love Candlewood Smiles :)

Great experience, the only and important concern would be I didn't notice anyone wash their hands before my treatment. I don't believe I noticed a sink when n the exam room. However, the service was such that I will definitely recommend this place.

Everything great for me but for my child the dental assistant or hygienist that cleaned her teeth was very rude and uncaring of her comment on how she was yanking at the floss during the cleaning. Children have feelings and concerns too this should be taken into account. Mistreat the child you could loose two clients in one.

The dental staff was warm, knowledgeable, and did a good job of going through the paperwork hassle free. I really enjoyed the dentist taking the time to educate on the treatment plan, and answer all my questions. The benefits coordinator was pleasant to work with and thorough in her explanation. I felt knew the treatment plan, and the staff offered options for payment. I also appreciated the benefits coordinator educating me about my dental plan.

I did not rate a 5 out of 5 because there is always room for improvement. One thing I can recommend, though the office is small, is that seating is limited so during a heavy afternoon crowd, it can be challenging to find a seat.

I wasn't able to have the recommended treatment done during my first visit, so I can't comment on my experience during the procedure which I've scheduled for next month. Aside from that, the visit was effortless, and even pleasant, considering it was a dental exam. I don't particularly like having people in my face and sticking instruments into my mouth. But Dr. S, the x-ray technician, and the receptionist were all helpful, informative, and professional. After not having insurance for several years, I am very happy I chose this dental office.

This visit was the first one at this office. It has exceeded any expectation in terms of the professionalism, kindness, sensitivity and the overall atmosphere of the office. Unlike other dental office, this appointment was used as efficiently as possible to accomplish a lot, doing not just the exam, but almost the full treatment plan, which is not without potential complications. Everybody in the office is smiling and has a good sense of humor, making the patient feel like home and among friends. Very relaxing and reassuring. This is how a dental office should be!!! Last, but most importantly, the hand of the doctor - just like everybody else - was as confident as it can be! Thank you All!

From the moment i walked in everyone was smiling and in a great mood. My dentist Dr.S was amazing, she understood my situation,kind, gentle, and very informative. Jessica her DA through the process was also extremely sweet and kept making sure i was okay. They were a fabulous team, as i was in the chair getting work done they spoke to each other and had a great respect for each other's suggestions. Being able to hear that made me confident they were making sure that i got the best treatment. As someone with extreme anxiety I was able to get through it with their help. After they were done Erin the hygienist was great as well and made sure I was ok also. I was able to make a dental plan with the benefits coordinator and she was also great. I have nothing but great things to say about this team. Thank you everyone!!
