I had a full check up and cleaning with Dr. Sabrina Chen. She and her staff is amazing. This location is brand new so everything is clean and fresh. The tv in the ceiling and protection glasses for the bright light were great and helpful due to my migraines history. I felt very well treated. This location just started but they are going big! Get an appointment before it gets busy. Oh! And got a free electric brush for being one of the first clients wuhu!
After not going to the dentist in two years I feel great and will definetely come back! Thanks Dr. Chen!
