    Well-Informed About Treatment Plan

    I appreciated how Dr. Barker showed my x-rays on a large monitor & explained what I was looking at. I felt informed & part of the treatment process. The administrative staff were also very helpful in explaining the costs of treatment and how my insurance would be contributing.

    Excellent and easy visit

    Everything from beginning to end of this visit went smoothly. Scheduling was easy. The cleaning was thorough and efficient. Billing and insurance to get out the door was quick. I had not been to a dentist in years and I felt comfortable here.
