My experience going to lifetime of smiles is always so delightful. From the time I walk in the door everyone is so pleasant from the office staff to my hygienist Gina. Who by the way is the best . She always makes you feel comfortable and at ease and in good hands. She very professional and personable .she really takes time to explain everything she does and answers all your question's. you never feel rushed and she does an excellent job cleaning your teeth. Dr Pat came in that day after my cleaning and he’s like Gina explains everything to you and answers any questions you may have. He’s an excellent dentist and very knowledgeable. I’ve been going there for a very long time and always get great care.
Response from the owner: Thank you Gladys for your 5 star review! I missed you! I am so happy Dr. Pat was able to help you and Ed!!
Another crown put in by Dr Ed he did an excellent job as always been going to A Lifetime of Smiles for years from dental implants to crown’s to cleaning’s. Dr Pat is a great dentist too along with the hole staff never had a bad experience or any pain while being worked on Highly recommend going to A Lifetime of Smiles for any dental work I always leave with a smile on my face.
Response from the owner: Thank you so much for your loyalty Robert! We truly appreciate you!
Dr. Ed and the lovely Gina really put the sun in my shine. After how well they performed my routine cleaning, I’m now considering them to put in a set of 24k gold grillz. I’m not exactly sure he does that type of work, but I’ll gladly be his first patient. I can say with conviction, if your teeth are tigers, Dr. Ed is Joe Exotic. And Gina is the glue that holds it all together.
Response from the owner: Jake, you are awesome and a ton of fun!! Thank you for the wonderful review. I am not sure about Joe Exotic...
