The staff was very nice and helpful. Pretty much what I would expect out of any professional office. Others were willing to help as well. Just because I had one dentist assigned to me didnt stop another from helping out before they started their work. Overall I was very welcomed and had a good experience. The type of work I had done really hurt, but that was the nature of it. I would recommend this office to anyone and I have already mentioned it at work.

Overall, a pleasant visit. Dental care was excellent. Lead dentist, hygenist, and benefits coordinator were all amiable and personable individuals. The only negatives were the wait time between dental consultation and initiation of cleaning and two (very brief) interruptions during the cleaning. These were from other office staff either attempting to locate something and checking in on the progress. The hygenist maintained focus during these events, however, so ultimately this is only a minor concern.

I was seen on time, however, after getting my X-rays and gums read it seemed like no one was prepared to do a cleaning on me that day even though I was a new patient appointment and that was why I came. I was there for a total of 3 hours and waited in the chair for an hour to get my gums procedure/cleaning. The dental assistant said she would be 15 minutes but instead it was an hour. She did apologize and said she wasn't great with time and they like to take the best care with every patient. I understand but I did have other plans after and I did not leave until about 6pm when my apt was at 3pm. I loved all of the employees there and everyone was very informative and nice. Very high tech and detailed with everything!

This was my first visit to this location. First impressions are lasting & this is very welcoming, positive, and trusting. As a new patient I was treated like everyone knew me. Dr. Watkins is open & honest, giving the big picture plus all options available. I especially liked the idea of insurance that was offered. As a retired person cost is important. Thanks to everyone for a pleasant experience. .

My hygienist was like a song bird. A song bird with the tenaciousness of a hawk. She would not let that nearly microscopic bit of tartar loose and all the while in a voice of an angel assured me we would be victorious. Dr. Watkins gave me a very understandable course of treatment and sense of confidence that I look for in a employer or golf partner.

I really am happy with this dental group. The only thing is that I requested nitrous oxide and this was not available. I was undergoing procedures for 3.5 hours and this might have been helpful (not sure, never had it before.) Everyone did a good job trying to relax me and was professional; however, after the proceedures I was sore the next few days from tensing up so many muscles. I was also exhausted from the "ordeal" and ended up sleeping 12 hours. I would liked to have tried to nitrous oxide. On the other hand...WOW! I had almost ZERO pain in my mouth the next day! I did not even have to take Tylenol! And my teeth look and feel great. I can really notice the difference. Thank you all for a great job and a beautiful office.

4 - I am confident it will be a 5 next visit. I had the grinding dental chair which was quite loud but I'm sure will be fixed. I also had to wait for the laser as I understood 1 laser for 3 dental hygenists. Wait was a little long. Again I am sure times will be shorter next visit. Really appreciated the staff and high tech approach to dental care. Dr was great.

It had been quite a few years since I had been to the dentist because of bad experiences in the past with a different dentist. They put my mind completely at ease and worked with my fears to help me understand that they were there to help me, not make money and push me out the door as quickly as they could. I have already recommended them to my family and would happily recommend them to anyone out there that has any fears of going to the dentist. Just be honest and open with them - they were helpful and amazing!
