I am so fortunate to have found Dr. Mears. He has provided excellent care for me for many years. He is exceptionally gentle and caring.He will absolutely do what is necessary but he will never push a service--he is very conscientious about his patients' well being, both medically and financially.He thoroughly explains procedures and he, along with his hygienist, Kate, prioritize dental care and patient education. They both want what's best for me and I feel their goal is for me to never need anything more than a routine cleaning. Of course it's comforting to know that I can trust them if I do need a procedure. Everyone in the office is just as welcoming. I would never go anywhere else.
