"...I travel 12 miles to get here. Wouldn't have it any other way."
"Doctor Maria and staff are wonderful. Having gone to Dr. Sue, Dr. Maria's mother, for 20 years I was scared to make a change when she retired. I have been a patient here for a year now and I feel home again. She helps me with her gentle, calming way feel relaxed. I guess the apple doesn't fall far from the tree. The staffs is wonderful . Starting with Esther in the front always welcoming to us patients to Benjie the assistant to Dr. Maria. He treats me with great respect and makes sure I'm comfortable. Having had a life-long fear of dentists I have been so fortunate to be here with Dr. Maria and staff since Dr. Sue retired. I travel 12 miles to get here. Wouldn't have it any other way." -- Steve H.
