Dr. Laurie Jayne Toomajanian--and her competent staff--are actually much better than family as far as I'm concerned since I do always look forward to seeing her and each of her staff for my regularly scheduled appointments. Best, Dr. Laurie is competent!! And kind!! She genuinely cares about her patients and if she's causing pain in any way (she never has). In short, she and her staff are positively terrific, and my husband and I are difficult to please. In fact, we travel four hours to reach her office and it has never occurred to us to find a closer dentist, we're just so pleased with our regular care.
