I love Dr. Dina, she is great. She cares. She listens. She takes the time to talk to you and explain. She is comforting. She has a wonderful sense of humour. Her skills are top rated. I came from a very bad dentist situation of pain, I thought I may have to be sedated from now on. Because of Dr Dina I feel comfortable having dental work done without sedation.

Thank you Dr Dina.

I highly recommend Dr Dina.

Always making me feel comfortable and taking great care of my teeth. I always look forward to going to the dentist, but how these ladies are like extra fam and friends. See ya Wednesday ☺️

Superb service, excellent dental procedures, warm atmosphere, at times funny staff. Also, they only charge the insurance rate for procedures- no extra billing here. #1 in my book.
