“I really like them here, they’re great!”
We had three appointments scheduled in one afternoon, so we spent a good amount of time in the office yesterday. It was a first visit for all three of us, and we were very, very impressed and thankful to find a new and long-term dentist for our family! It was a very pleasant experience – even for our two boys, one of whom had a have two wiggly but stubborn teeth pulled unexpectedly. The staff was very communicative throughout the process, thoughtful, and down to earth. In addition, the front desk was very upfront about cost, etc.
I love Caldwell dental! Friendly staff, Clean, they never make you feel dumb for asking a question. Never rushed. Always feel confident when I leave. They take the time to educate. No matter who you get you are always treated like family.
