Take a Virtual Look at Our Office and What We Have to Offer
Everybody at the office made me feel so comfortable!

I thought it was impossible to ever say I had a pleasant experience at the dentist BUT it actually happened! Dr Schriftman, Victoria, Ashley and everybody at the office made me feel so comfortable! They listened, were super kind and made sure that the whole experience was painless! I just had a wisdom tooth pulled out and I can honestly say that it was seamless and pain free!
I also have to mention the very convenient office hours that allowed me to go on the weekend and not waste a sick day!
Now I have to go back for stitches removal but I would go back regardless!
