What They're Saying About Us

I took my three children to Dr. Harpavat and my children loved it! My littlest who is two held his mouth wide open as Dr. H. examined his teeth. Dr. Harpavat is very thorough and gentle with the children and the staff around was amazing and made us feel right at home!

Dr. Sandhya Harpavat is a wonderful person, mother, and pediatric dentist. I would recommend her to pediatric families for her exceptional skills and her kind demeanor that relieves all anxiety for patients and parents.

I saw Dr. Lankford for my first-ever cleaning a couple of years ago. I’ve had fillings, a crown, my wisdom teeth removed, and now I’ve got braces. Dr. Lankford has been there every step of the way. He’s awesome! The staff are all extremely friendly and welcoming.

Definitely one of the best dental experiences I’ve ever had. Dr. Dean pushed my claim through quickly, x-rays done fast, explained things clearly, and repaired a tooth a previous dentist did a horrible job on. Staff is super friendly and accommodating. My family won’t be going anywhere else again!
