Dr. Cho was so kind and really listened to my concerns with dental work and worked with me to give me the smile of my dreams. I am so grateful to him for the kindness and patience he showed and the effort he made to give me such a beautiful smile. Thank you for everything. Olivia, the dental assistant was so wonderful and was with me for every appointment and really walked me through everything and (literally) held my hand while I was so nervous during my appointments. I am so grateful to have found such an amazing office. I also want to say that Mary, is so upfront and knowledgeable about procedures and my insurance I appreciated her being so on top of everything for me. Overall an amazing experience and would HIGHLY recommend any of the staff member to anyone. Thank you guys.

The staff and doctor were some of the nicest staff I have ever been helped by. They made me feel comfortable and safe in their office. The doctor was beyond amazing. I have never had a dentist be as focused and present on my appointment as her. I also have never had a dentist show me all of the anatomy we were looking at and explain what they are looking for in such detail. She was amazing! I will continue to have my dentistry needs taken care of at this office for a long long time.
