"When I arrived and was in the dental chair I asked how long would it take for my crown, she (Ella,I believe was her name) said an hour. That was the fasted hour I've ever had in a dental office. The dentist and her assistant (Ella) worked well together. I especially liked their bed side manner and the dentist dry humor. Please forgive me that I don't remember their names."- S.H. / Google / Sep 11, 2017
