I can't even begin to tell you what a fantastic experience I have had!I have a legit phobia of dentists. This is the most warm, welcoming ( and fancy!) office. You walk in there is no dentist smell. The staff couldn't have been kinder. A total judgement free zone full of compassion and gentleness. It's full of strong females led by Dr Hoyt. She is a perfectionist in every great sense of the word. Vera did my deep cleaning and it was so painless and she was so nice to me the whole time. The front desk accommodates you so well. You feel like you are being welcomed into a family and you are now part of theirs. As a person who avoided the dentist for many years I feel like I am in the best hands and normally I would flake out but I have kept every appointment because I felt so well taken care of and knew I would never be in pain. Highly Highly recommend!! Plus they have a holistic approach which was extra points!

This place is great. All of the staff and Dr Horiyat are exceptional. I had the LANAP procedure done in December after putting it off for many years. The results so far have been good, and I know that this team has my health as a top priority.

It was good experience as always. I received a follow up call after my temporary crown which was great and the whole experience was painless and smooth! Thank you!
