Overall, a great place for family dental care. Dr. Tony is friendly and very thorough. He will spend whatever time is necessary to ensure you understand your treatment and your oral health status. His assistants are qualified and capable, providing a positive experience for what may be, for some, an uncomfortable procedure (cleanings, fillings).

Restorative care is also done with great care to ensure patient comfort. This office is equipped with very up-to-date technology to allow Dr. Tony and his staff to easily handle all basic dental care services. (they refer out for the more involved procedures like root canals and oral surgery)

Billing is handled accurately and expediently. No issues whatsoever. Tami's estimates are pretty much correct to the dollar. Super reliable!

We have had some issues with appointment scheduling. Short notice cancellations due to last-minute unavoidable personal schedule impacts were not well-received. We were told this created "inconveniences to the doctor" and left gaps in their schedule. Not my problem when I have a busy schedule of my own that I cannot always control. The receptionist tone was short/rude...perhaps she momentarily forgot who the customer really is (the patient), but this happened more than once.

She is paid to manage a schedule so I was willing to dismiss the attitude and let her do her job.

This pretty much had my wife ready to drop them and find a new dentist, but we realize everyone has bad days and specific sensitivities about their job.

9 out of 10 rating...will continue seeing Dr. Tony for the foreseeable future.
