Dr. Mears and his staff are all fabulous! I have been to at least three other dentists and he is by far the best. He is gentle and very thorough. I especially like that he explains his procedures to me as well as what I need to do to take care of my teeth. He is all about preventative care. I know that I can trust his recommendations. He takes excellent care of me but does not ever encourage expensive procedures that he does not feel are necessary.He truly cares about his patients.
