I love this Dentist Office. I've lived in many places and this one is the best one I've used. They are thorough, professional and make me feel welcome. They use the latest technology and have Netflix to watch while in the chair. I appreciate the reminder texts before my appointments. The location and parking are excellent too! AND they run on time with your appointments!

I had a cracked front tooth while visiting and they turned me away before even looking at the schedule and didn't attempt to help me at all. I would definitely find another dentist in the area.

Constant reminders for ratings are annoying. The staff habit of asking question/s about plans for the day are also annoying, especially for those of us with ten mile long lists.Feels robotic, sophomoric, and intrusive all at the same time. Genuine common courtesies will do.That said, the procedure appeared to go well.

Dr. Bjornson got me in right away when I was experiencing a lot of pain. She was quick with diagnoses and got me a referral to an oral surgeon to remove my wisdom teeth. Was very happy with my visit even considering the circumstances.
