It's a new trend to have a "specialist" for everything: root canal, Periodontist, implant specialist, general dentistry..........having to pay 3 different providers for one tooth, it used to be you see your dentist and they did everything. But not just this practice, it's all over the place. The good thing is that at this practice all the specialists are in one place so you don't have to make appointments at different offices. They work together and it's "one stop shopping". The front end professionals are totally awesome, welcoming, friendly and your source of information. The docs are fabulous. Great skills and awesome personalities. The hygienists are just as wonderful. Nice atmosphere, waiting room is like a living room, not clinical at all. I would recommend this practice.
