Patient Feedback

It is hard to believe going to the dentist can be an enjoyable experience. The office was clean and vey modern. Everyone was incredibly friendly and helpful. And the best part, it was the first pain free cleaning I have ever had. Usually my gums are sore for about an hour after my cleaning, but I walked out of the office without any pain, even though it had been 2 yrs since my last cleaning. You should definitely give them a try.
My first time at this particular Dentist office and I was pleasantly surprise with everything....As soon as I walked in I felt welcome by the office staff...Was given a tour by the Dental Assistant...Which made me feel comfortable and at ease. The Dentist and Dental Assistant was very compassionate and answered all of my questions...I will definitely come again and recommend it to all of my family and friends.
Dr. Lesson and his staff are a refreshing change from the chain dental groups; friendly and talented without the feeling that they are trying to sell you more than you need done. I would highly recommended Dr. Leeson!
