Ask the Dentist a Question
"I think this is the best dentist office I've ever been to. Everyone is so friendly and helpful. I like the way they speak to each other, as well as how they talk to me. They are prompt, answer questions and are always checking to make sure I'm doing ok. I appreciated how Dr. Wang explained what was going on and what the options were. I felt very comfortable here and will be recommending them to my friends."
"Being at the dentist has always been a bad experience in the past! I am so impressed with the whole staff! Very professional & friendly! It was a very relaxing feeling to know how caring they were! Thank you, so much!"
"I had to have a wisdom tooth removed and the staff made me feel incredibly comfortable even though I was having a lot of anxiety about the procedure. I really appreciate everyone being so patient and kind towards me."
"I come to Smile Design because of Dr Sean Douglas. I always know he will complete the required dental process to my satisfaction and at a reasonable price. I also respect his continuing efforts participating in Mission Projects annually. I think this really describes what type of person he really is."
