Listen to what our patients have to say!

Today I had a 2 1/2 hour appointment with Dr. Pete Richards to repair a crown which had come off. In the process he cleaned off the remainder of the old tooth, performed a root canal, built up the old tooth and created a new crown, which was put in place. He along with his staff was highly professional, friendly and did an outstanding job. Frank Sacho, 1/21/2015
