Everyone is so pleasant and friendly, and they use the mist advanced systems and procedures I’ve had cleanings, fillings and even a crown and highly recommend City of Oaks Dentistry.

I always receive personalized attention from Jody and Dr. Throop. While I’m here I feel like I’m the only thing that matters. This is a really professional, well run dental office.

My family and I have received excellent care from Dr. Troop and her very competent team since she first took over the practice from our old dentist, Dr. Makely. Both my husband and I have experienced dental issues after-hours, and Dr. Thrips always responded quickly and with concern. We both highly recommend City of Oaks Dental.

The TMJ evaluation was very thorough and Kaitlin and Dr. Throop explained all the tests and procedures in clear detail.

I’m an anxious patient when it comes to the dentist and city of oaks has the friendliest, most attentive, gentle staff. Jodi handled my annual cleaning and she talked me through every step and always asked how I was doing throughout the entire process. Highly recommend!
