The quality of service was great. The staff and doctor were positive and friendly, wait time minimal, gave excellent support when I was nervous, and delivered a virtually painless procedure for filling cavities. The only non positive thing was a technology glitch when the computer system was down. It was handled responsibly though and all went well.
