I haven't been to the dentist in a very long time. Dr. First was very nice and she made me feel comfortable during my visit. She's knowledgeable and professional. Her staff is also great. The women at the front desk we're welcoming and the dental assistant I sat with was too. Overall a great experience and I will continue to see her as my dentist.
