Dr. Nancy and your assistant thank you for your gentle ways. I never felt so comfortable in a dentist chair before! Having the T.V and earphones really did help me relax. I will keep my keep my appointments with you knowing I will feel great when it’s all done, and I am keeping up with my brushing and flossing. Thank you again.
I’ve been dentist phobic all my life and have been putting off much needed dental care. A friend recommended Atwell Dental, so – trusting my friend – I made an appointment. I was very impressed with Dr Clayton’s soft approach – explaining every movement as she did her job. Right away I began to relax and when it was time for the dreaded injection I found it was shockingly pain free. All of the staff are friendly and caring and the office has an almost Zen-like quality to it. I’m really happy that I went with my friend’s recommendation – so thank you friend! Now, it’s my turn to recommend Atwell, and I do – very highly!
Thank you Staff for following up on the special dental product. Our daughter is very excited to have her own reusable floss holder now. I always appreciate the outstanding service I get from everyone at Atwell Dental!
