Great staff, Great Dentist. I have been going here for years after being referred by a local orthodontist. So glad I asked for the recomendation. They are professional as well as relaxed, a great combination. There is a respectful attitude between staff that is passed on to patients. I have recommended Greenwood Dental to everyone I know.
As always we were met with smiling faces. Timely and professional visit. Thoughtful advice and help from all the staff Thank you
