Best dentist and staff I have ever had!!

5 stars Verified customer

As per usual Dr. Higgins, Enid and Ellen were in rare form. What with their humor, not to mention expertise, they make what is an ordeal almost pleasant. I say ordeal because my teeth are not in the best of conditions, which is rather depressing. But they don't give me a guilt trip or scold, just work miracles. I'd publish as myself but have to make sure my former dentist doesn't see this!!

Dr. John J. Higgins replied:

thank you so much! that means a lot that you took the time to comment your feelings. appreciate you!!

Dr. Higgins is very caring, competent and friendly. He has always managed to see me in a timely manner especially when I have been in pain. The supporting staff are wonderful and very pleasant and efficient. I highly recommend this practice!

I've been a patient for many years. Just going to a dentist fills me with considerable angst. Dr. Higgins and his outstanding staff treat me well, respectfully...and with exceptional care and expertise. Thank you.

I love Dr Higgins

During my routine cleaning and exam, which itself was a very pleasant experience, it was found that I needed four fillings refinished. I was able to get an appointment to treat the problem for the next day. Excellent!

My mouth feels great. Spent over two hours in the chair getting an extensive dental tune-up. The cleaning was by far the most thorough I have ever experienced, yet it was pleasant with minimal discomfort. Dr. Higgins then painlessly repaired a pair of cracked old fillings and adjusted my bite. My mouth feels great - next time I won't put off going to the dentist for a decade or two.

Dr. Fred Bruno

5 stars 184 reviews

Dr Bruno is friendly, professional and, most importantly, highly knowledgeable. In addition, his practice is well-managed so that the appointments are on time. I have never felt "rushed" during any of my appointments. I highly recommend him to anyone suffering from pain that can be alleviated by the care of a chiropractor.

Every experience at Paabo is amazing and this was no different. Bonnie, Tomasa and everyone treat my mother with such care, and Bonnie and Puni did a beautiful job on both of us! Puni is so considerate and always a happy shining light when I come in. She even acknowledged my birthday! Thank you, thank you.
