Dr. Curtis, Dr. Bayer, and ALL of the staff are simply amazing. Not only do they make you feel comfortable at every appointment but they also hear what you have to say. I had oral jaw surgery and all of the staff were very empathetic throughout my whole treatment, which was two years. Extremely satisfied with my new smile!
