The front staff and assistants are so friendly and great at making you comfortable from when you first walk in and Patty was amazing figuring out a solution with Dr Acacio to my dilemmaI can’t thank them enough for their kindness and professionalismI highly recommend them!!!!p.s. I do not like going to the dentist so when I say they are great… they are GREAT!
