"When I entered the office, the reception area was spotless and welcoming with its warm décor. I checked in with a very pleasant receptionist and before I even sat down, Tanya, my hygienist, came to greet me. I appreciate that the office runs on time. I was greeted by Dr. Trakakis right away as he had a major procedure coming up. He gave me the exam very efficiently. I always enjoy seeing him. Tanya got to work on my 6-month cleaning which is always very thorough. She is so warm and friendly as a professional who puts me at ease. She scheduled my next appointment while I was with her. Checkout was quick and easy. About four years ago, I came as an emergency patient but have remained with them. A wonderful team!"- S.H. / Yelp / Jun 30, 2019
