Doctor Wagner is the Best! The staff there is very friendly and easy going. The doctor really explains what she recommends as a treatment and takes time to listen and answer questions. I was never rushed. My experience with my first visit here went wonderfully. The office staff even helped me get an appointment quickly.

Staff’s on time, Dentist consistently late. Practice does NOT take MOST insurance, and not at all worth the money. You wait around to be RUSHED by the dentist. The supporting staff is keeping these doors open. Wish I’d done more homework on this Dentist and read reviews other than just here.
