This is a family dentistry and I've had the pleasure of being a patient of both Dr. Blake and Dr. Derek. They are very kind and compassionate, truly taking the time to know each patient on a very personal level. The staff is great, all have such wonderful personalities and make you feel so welcomed from the minute you come in the door. I have never experienced such personal attention from any dentist I've been to before moving here!
