The front desk is courteous and professional. Dr. Lamb took the time to patiently evaluate and educate me on my dental health – going as far to show me how to effectively brush and floss my teeth. Although I am 62 years old and should know this, Dr. Lamb and Julia made me feel valued and empowered. I look forward to preserving my smile! In addition, Tracy diligently discussed my insurance options and guidelines for me to continue treatment! Thank you!
