Let me start by saying that this is the only dental office that I’ve ever actually looked forward to visiting when my scheduled appointments come up–not something you’re likely to hear about other dental practices. The first reason for this is the amazingly welcoming and friendly staff–everyone included, from Drs to assistants to the girls up front at the desk, the vibe is super chill and relaxing–more reminiscent of a spa than a dental office. I particularly appreciate that they play great music in the office, which also contributes to the calming effect. I’ve even heard that they’ve started using a little aroma therapy in situations where patients are particularly distressed in the chair…again, good vibes all around here! I really appreciate the holistic and preventative approach that the Drs and assistants take. With what seems like the most modern technology available, they get a snapshot of your overall dental health and customize a comprehensive plan to address the issues that need improvement. I’ve been in for a number of different procedures in the last year or so and have found that with each step in the program designed for me, I notice a marked improvement in the overall health of my mouth, which believe it or not, does have an effect on my general health and outlook–healthy mouth, healthy body, healthy mind. More specifically, I went in a year ago having never in my life had a cavity or braces–really any sort of dental work other than annual cleanings. At that time I was experiencing on-going and nearly debilitating pain at times in particular areas in my mouth. I thought maybe I had finally had my first cavities? After a thorough examination the Dr determined that this pain was likely stemming from the fact that I had never had my wisdom teeth removed. This clearly was a source of anxiety for me as would be anyone, after hearing about and seeing our friends and family go through this surgery when most of us were in high school. The procedure itself was as quick and painless as it possibly could have been–and the Dr and dental assistant did an amazing job of providing a comfortable and relaxing environment during the surgery. I was in and out of the chair in about 10 minutes for each side of tooth removal. Amazing… Even more amazing was that after having those teeth pulled, the pain that had been bothering me for months was gone…immediately and ever since…gone. After a few more follow ups and continuing with the program that they had designed, I decided to get a professional whitening done, which I just had done about a month ago. Landy (the assistant) is quite honestly amazing at this procedure, which can be a little more intense than one might think having never had it done. Not only did she do a great job keeping me comfortable and calm, but the results were nearly shocking. I couldn’t even believe how bright and sparkling white my teeth looked. And to go the extra mile, she made sure that I understood the follow up actions during the week after so that my white teeth would stay that way. Again, amazing… What I love about this office is that the staff is so friendly and positive and provide a super comfortable and relaxing environment in a place where many people come in the door with anxiety or fear about what’s going to happen that day. Further, they are knowledgeable and professional and truly make you feel like they care about you–which is hard to come by in most any dr / patient relationship in my experience. WDA is my dental office for life…or at least I certainly hope so…best dental office EVER!!
