“My kids love Dr. Eric. He made their experience very fun, easy and painless. He is very knowledgeable, honest and explained everything so my kids understood!”

– Fuad S.

“My 2-year-old son was scared to go in for his first dental visit, but next thing I knew, the assistants were cheering him up, the hygienist had him counting his teeth while she cleaned, and Dr. Eric had him ecstatic with his balloon dog! By the end, he was completely happy and only got upset when we had to leave. Awesome experience!”

– Irfan K.
