“I love this location, they’re very sweet and always take great care of me. My teeth are looking great! Only reason I subtracted a point is because wait times are getting longer and longer. I showed up to my appointment (2 minutes behind) today and have been waiting for an hour to be seen. They’re super busy today but last time I came I waited in the chair for a while too and they weren’t very busy that time. But, this is q great staff. They’re great at what they do and I recommend everyone come here! Just expect to be here for a while when you come and if you have to go to work maybe request the whole day off. 😅😂”
