Why Patients Return To Our New Haven Practice
What a wonderful dental practice! I’ve never received such amazing and personal care at a dentist office and/or most other medical offices. This team works well together and is happy to let you know as many details as you’re interested in knowing about what’s going on in your mouth. Everyone is on the ball, responsive, and just a pleasure to chat with! I rarely post reviews and found myself asking where I can do so for this office due to the high level of service I received. Thank you everyone and I look forward to my next cleaning ;)View on Google
The best dentists office I’ve been to in years.
I saw dental hygienist, Dung (pronounced young) at the beginning of the week. She was so kind and explained everything that she saw in my ex-rays. Gave me tips on flossing and other things.
Today I received a filling and Dr. Lurch was just as lovely and thorough. 10/10 would recommend.
