"Friendly staff, professional attitude. I like the way they take care of my teeth. The only thing that at least seemed weird during the last laser session was that the hygienist could not understand and then explain to me why there was a painful burning sensation on my gums as well as why there was a smoke (literally smoke) coming out during the treatment. I don’t know if that’s common for laser treatment but at least it was a bit of a scary experience, however I feel okay after deep cleaning procedure involving laser"- T.A. / Google / Jun 23, 2018
