The quality of service given by General Pearson and his wonderful staff are well worth my hour and a half drive from Palm Springs. The atmosphere is more like a visit with friends than a staunch environment. Dr. Pearson listens with care and patience about your concerns, making sure you understand the problem and the options. He stands behind his work 100%. After visiting serveral dentists in the desert I've also found his prices to be extremely reasonable. This one has it all...quality work, friendliness, personal concern, very reasonable prices and a sense of humor to boot. I never dread a trip to the dentist anymore.
