Having had but two dentists in the last almost 50 years and one of those for more than 30 years, this was a most welcome and pleasant experience. The staff are very friendly, explain what is being done to me/my mouth, and even sing during the drilling. I was hesitant to switch dentists even though I wasn't fond of the person who replaced my retired dentist, but this really was the best possible choice I could have made. Thanks really go to my husband, John, who decided he had to find someone new, and to Kim Nashif who highly recommended Dr. Svino and staff to me for him. Undoubtedly, the initial appointment/cleaning and today's prep for two new crowns were the best dental visits I've had in like, forever. My son still goes to our old dentist, but I'm hoping I can convince him to switch to Dr. Svino.
