What Our Clients Say About Us

  • "I bought a Groupon for this establishment. I was pleasantly surprised by the friendliness of the assistant and the dentist. The assistant was conversational and kind. The dentist was detailed and patient. He took additional pics and took the time to explain each one. They provided an immediate quote for the work I need. The prices were reasonable, not super inflated. When I am ready to do the work I will be going there. I wish them the best and hope they build a successful practice!"
    Holly P.

  • "I'm not a big fan of going to the dentist, but I have to say Dr. Arria and his staff were wonderful. They made sure I was comfortable the whole time with everything going on and didn't make me feel self conscious about being a bit of a wimp. Dr. Arria explained everything in detail and worked with me on a proper course of action for future visits. I also didn't feel any pressure to do certain things (fix old fillings) like I have with other dentists. Everybody was very friendly and professional and I will absolutely use him again."

    Carolyne A.
  • "Dr Arria is the first dentist I've been to in 10 years or more. I had my first appointment a few weeks ago, a cleaning which was remarkably pleasant!
    The following week I came back for cavity fillings. Dr Arria continually asked for assurance of a ZERO pain level on my end.
    This week I went back for an extraction. I had two wisdom teeth pulled. I was nervous for the procedure so I didn't eat before going in. Dr Arria and his staff graciously offered to delay the procedure so... I could go eat first, because I wouldn't be able to for hours after.
    The procedure was FAST and LITERALLY pain free. I was in and out in an hour and on with my day!
    They have Saturday appts and are available for emergencies.
    Dr Arria and his staff are immensely attentive and I wouldn't consider seeing another dentist!"
