Patient Testimonials

Patient Review By Christine B

I had a problem with dental floss being trapped between two crowns over the weekend. I eventually was able to remove the floss but needed attention to possible damage that I may have caused to my gums and crowns. I called Monday morning at 7 a.m. and they were very helpful getting me in to see a dentist for an examination. Presently, I am a patient of Dr. Clayton but he was unable to see me. Dr. Norvell was able to help me instead and I was very pleased with his professionalism and the care I had received. Everyone in the office was very pleasant and helpful. I would recommend this office to others for their dental needs. Thank you for the care!
