This has got to be the BEST dental surgery I have ever visited. Dr JJ and his entire team offer excellent, professional service, and they take great pride in making patients feel comfortable, informed and safe under their care. Being a patient with many past awful experiences with other dentists, I developed a major phobia and hate for dental visits. When I started visiting Dr JJ’s practice, however, I was blown away by the high quality of their service, as well as their compassion, empathy and emphasis on making the patient feel they were in good, capable, trustworthy hands.
