"Everybody I came into contact with here was awesome and very professional. I had been having terrible wisdom tooth pain (always fun) and they fit me in on the day I called to get it looked at. Getting my wisdom tooth out was relatively painless and Dr. Wofford was great to work with. They even worked with me on my lack of dental insurance and set me up to pay WAY less than I would've expected. I have always been anxious about the dentist, but everyone was so great here I would definitely recommend them to anyone."- M.C. / Yelp / May 21, 2018
