Our Latest Patient Testimonial

I had a difficult molar extraction. (Only the roots remained). The professional treatment that the Dr performed topped any that I had received in the past. I am a dental hygienist and I highly recommend Dr H and his staff for outstanding treatment and follow up.

Our Latest Patient Testimonial

Like all patients I was a little nervous. I was used to being “the doctor” … retired after 40 years as practicing dentist/ endodontist. From my experience I highly recommend this office. The doctor and staff seem to truly care about both the patient and the successful outcome of the procedure.
