We have moved multiple times in our lifetime and have had to change dentists due to the moves. Dr. Blake is one of those special practitioners that is impassioned about Dentistry as well as the 'application' of his passion. He knowledge base is impressive and his hand touch is impressive in ways that i have not experienced. I asked him how his administration of Novocaine is so comfortable. He told me that he takes his time: and the extra 30 seconds are what helps his patient feel more comfortable. I would validate that this works for me. My experience with Dr. Blake is that because he has a passion for dentistry in specifics and in general, he can be called an 'expert'. My 15 yr old daughter verified all that i experienced. I asked her after she got 2 cavities filled because she has been sensitive to dental visits. Between their movie screen, ear plugs, and Dr. Blake's expertise, she came out smiling! I experience that Dr. Blake is consistent with his work and because of this quality consistency, I am comfortable referring a stranger or friend to Dr. Blake.
