I had to go for not a rather pleasant visit. I was getting anxious just thinking of some of the things that I knew they had to do that I had previously experienced with other dentist that had been extremely unpleasant to the point that I was afraid to ever go back to a dentist's office again. Fortunately, a friend of mine that works here recommended that I try this office and reluctuantly I did and I am so glad I did. I know now that I am not pushed or feel like I am being coerced into doing something just because they said so. Dr. Shipp discusses all options and lets you know what course of action he recommends but also lets the patient know that it is there decision. This dentist office is extremely different from others that I have been to before, and trust me I've been to plenty. It's like I have been looking for the Holy Grail of Dentist and I am so thankful that I have found it. The Dental Hygenist that assists Dr. Ship, Denise, is also a gem. She senses when I am feeling anxious and offers suggestions to help me alleviate the anxiety that comes with some of the procedures. Even though they stay booked up and are always busy, you never see any rush to get to the next patient. I always feel like my concerns are just as important to them as if I were the only patient they have. I recommend everyone I know that is looking for a dentist to give them a try.
