Dr. Faulkner is an excellent dentist. Everyone in his office is friendly and knows what they are doing. It's easy to get an "emergency" appointment; they always fit you in. I've had regular work, cleaning and a necessary crown and a root canal.
Always a good experience going to Dr. Faulkner's practice. The last visit was easy- just X-rays and a cleaning. But even when I had a root canal done last year, the procedure was painless and only took about 45 minutes! Very impressed with competence of Dr. Faulkner. Also Dr. Faulkner and his entire staff are friendly, personable and courteous.
We continue to receive the best care with Dr. Faulkner and his staff. Today, with the all the insurance issues both the care provider and patient have, Dr. Faulkner spends the time with each patient that is necessary.
I get very nervous when I need to see the dentist, I would prefer to never even go. Dr. Faulkner and his staff were very warm and professional. They made me feel, very at ease, they explained everything they were going to do, and they listened to my concerns and together we went through my procedure as a team. My husband and I would highly recommend Dr. Faulkner and his staff.
