Having the tarter picked off my teeth is a satisfying activity. I won't be giving up black coffee and red wine anytime soon, so it's worth it! The hygienist, Kristin, is non-judgmental (always has been) and just does her job effectively and without causing undo pain.
Dr. Atkinson is friendly, quiet, and has a great memory and recall about a patient's mouth.
The receptionist, Mary, is competent and friendly, and I'm sure, runs the place. :)
