I have two special needs kids and they were very skilled with them. The dental assistants were very patient empathic as well as the doctor. Would recommend!!! -Ana
Dr. Cottrell & Michaela were amazing. My son was super scared and they worked so well with him. I highly recommend this dental office. Michaela was so gentle and easy with my son that was testing her. I love this office, thank you guys once again. -Angie
