    Meghan B.
  • "I have been going here for 20 years . Best dentists in Columbus. Very friendly and u will get top notch service for your teeth."
    Matt M.
  • "My absolute favorite dentist office. They are not only friendly, but very professional and thorough! This is the first dentist office that ever offered me nitrous when they noticed my anxiety kicking into high gear during my dental procedures, no other dental offices have ever offered that. This makes a huge difference in patient care, comfort, and ultimately, satisfaction! Just to have these options and that level of notice/awareness take place is almost unheard of these days! I love everyone here and how they all treat me. I’ve moved 4-5 times since being in Columbus and while I may not be as close as I once was, I will come back here no matter how far away I am to receive this service. They have a patient for life in me! I highly recommend them!"
