Always a positive experience when I have my appointment. I feel like I get excellent dental care.
Great dentist love the staff very professional outstanding work I would highly recommend
Dr. Throop and her staff greet you and treat you like they are so glad to see you each time you come. My wife and myself both go there. If you have severe gag reflex like I do they know how to relax you and get you through it. Dr. Throop offers the notorious oxide which stops my gag reflex and makes hour in chair seem like 5 mins.
