I came to Northgate smiles after a horrible experience with my previous dentist. I felt a nervous wreck, but they made every effort to make sure I felt calm and informed. Maria was very kind and took my X-rays as quickly as she could to reduce my discomfort. Dr. Aylen took the time to explain my X-rays and options to me, making me feel like I was I was in excellent hands. And the lovely women in the office were very kind to me even though I was a bit emotional, only because going to the dentist stresses me out. They all really went above and beyond to make me feel comfortable and taken care of.
