Best experience! This group goes out of their way to make sure you are comfortable and relieve anxiety. Loved the comfort menu, I felt pampered with the warm neck wrap and essential oil. Very much appreciated the topical numbing gel to help ease my sensitive gag reflex during xrays! Everyone is very friendly and knowledgeable. Great skills!
