Dr. Neek is the best. She’s so good with the kids that come in. Our 2.5 year old was scheduled during “toddler time” where the hygienists are able to play with the kids before they actually do any cleaning. I was shocked at how easy the whole appointment went with our daughter and how willingly she got her teeth cleaned and X-Rayed. Telling everyone about this office and especially Dr. Neek.

My son needed two teeth extracted because his baby teeth were not wiggly at all once his adult teeth started coming in. I was amazed by the bedside manner all the staff members showed during the procedure. My son was nervous and Dr. J and staff were nurturing, kind, and got him through the process with good humor. I'm so grateful for this incredible staff. They also take many safety precautions to deal with Covid as safely as they can. I highly recommend this dental office, they are incredible at what they do!
