Best dental care I have ever received. Dr. Ashley and her staff provide thorough knowledge and explanation of choices as well as provide patients with current technology in a clean, welcome environment. For someone who has struggled with dental care her whole life, this is the first office I have felt comfortable and at ease with cleanings and procedures.
