    Both doctors are super nice and make our kids feel good about going to the dentist... Maybe too well because they always come gone with a handful of goodies! Whatever works. The staff is nice as well. Overall, I'm glad we found this dentist.

    We are obsessed with this office. We were referred here from our family dentist due to cavities that needed to be addressed. Dr. Robs plan of approach kept money in our pockets and challenged us to change our habits. We werenā€™t bad but with the genetics in this house, things like juice are a no-no! He encouraged us on how to ween the kids off it so he could take the least invasive approach to their care. I have now switched them both over and we just have him keep them up to date with cleanings. The staff are all top notch and so perfect with children.

    Dr. Collins and his whole staff are so nice! My 5 year old was referred to his office to get a cavity filled. I was nervous that having this done so young could be traumatizing and she would be scared to go to back to the dentist after. Nope! He was friendly, funny and gentle the whole time. She is looking forward to going back in a few months for her cleaning. šŸ˜
