Gina was extremely informative about the purpose of dental procedures. My cleaning with her was gentle and efficient. Best cleaning I’ve ever had.

I just started going to see Dr. Pat about a month ago and like most I am not a fan of the dentist but he has been great!! He explains what he is doing and has made sure that everything has been pain free. The way they run the office is amazing, so smooth, no long wait time and the girls in the front are beyond friendly. I also had a deep cleaning by Gina who was also amazing, very friendly, explains things well and they all make you feel so welcome.

I have had some terrible dental experiences over the years that has left me full of anxiety when I go to the dentist. For the first time I had a cleaning that didn't hurt and a hygienist that not only answered all of my questions but addressed my concerns. Gina is amazing and so knowledgeable. Dr. Ken also addressed my tooth pain and helped come up with a treatment plan to fix the issue. I didn't even feel his shot! He had the the most calming gentle demeanor. You cant go wrong with this office. Its the very best!

I was someone who put off dental work until the very last moment and had not been anywhere in 7 years. I was recommended to come here and I was not disappointed! The whole office is very friendly and open from the receptionist, to dental assistants, and the doctors. I had Doctor PAT as my dentist and I was so happy with how professional he was in his explanations of the procedures and his knowledgeable demeanor set me at ease! The dental assistant helping him named KYLIE was so sweet and their fun banter kept my mind off the teeth! They made me feel included and comfortable. I also want to thank my dental assistant GINA for the awesome cleaning and explanation of good teeth care! Everyone here is thorough and knows their stuff!
