What our patients say

  • By far the best dentist office ever!! My daughter likes going to the dentist! All the staff are very friendly and great with kids. Dr. Chris is the best! He is always smiling and interactive with all the kids.

    Theresa Howard,

  • Dr Chris and his assistants manner are so open and communicative with children that despite initial hesitation both my 5 yr old and 3 yr old relaxed into calm and happy experiences. "Can we go again soon?" they both asked after the appointment. Excellent on all counts and highly recommended!

    Jenny Solemn,

  • Dr. Chris Neal is the best children's dentist! He is so sweet and makes the kids absolutely comfortable. My teenager won't switch to a "grown-up dentist" and says she never will. Will highly recommend them to my family and friends.

    Lorraine Mills,

  • We had our first visit here after switching from another dentist and it was AMAZING! My daughter Actually likes going to the dentist now! All the staff are very friendly and great with kids. By far the best dentist office ever!!

    Sherry Mullen,

  • In a time where I've come to expect a nasty, crabby attitude problem from every medical office support staffer, this office is a breath of fresh air.

    Jenny W.,

  • The appointment was AMAZING! They made sure my little guy was comfortable the whole way through, stopping to tell jokes and give high fives, and even to do a little deep breathing when he started to get nervous.

    Page M.,

  • "I love EVERYTHING about this office. My kids couldn't be happier about going to the dentist!"

    Holly Roberson,

  • "My children have been going here for years and walk out smiling every time. Staff is great and efficient. Wait time is always low and the kids are in and out quickly. The kids love the tv area and games in the waiting room!"
