“What an amazing dentist. He is so careful and detail oriented. And he talks me through exactly what he’s doing so I know he knows his stuff. I had invisalign done by him and I’m blown away with how well it is going. And the cherry on top is his price for invisalign was thousands less than the other dentists I had a consultation with.”
