The dentist is now my favorite. It used to be Dr. Steele (there before her) and I've changed that assessment. She's very critical of her own work and seeks perfection. She doesn't appear to be that hard on her staff, which is a great quality for a doctor. She's sweet and personable. The staff is great, too, because they're friendly, make me feel welcome, and respect me as well. The hygienist is new and I can't really say, except that for the first time, the water tool they use to clean teeth didn't aggravate my sensitivity with my teeth as it usually does, which is either due to her, or due to new equipment. Probably her. Please keep these people this time. If you change doctors and staff again, I will leave and go to a non-Coast dental provider. I have too much going on with my teeth to have a less than first-rate dentist and staff and constant change. Thank you in advance!
