“I arrived late last night from Africa and had broken a filling on the flight en route. When I called the office this morning, they had an appointment available right away. After an hour of careful, painless work, my tooth was fixed and my vacation salvaged. I really appreciated Dr. Donelson’s careful attention to the work and to my comfort. All in all a fantastic dental experience.”

“Dr. David is a true professional and a great guy. Within minutes of meeting him, I knew he was an excellent dentist because of his attention to detail and the fact that he himself has great teeth. During the process of my crown treatment, he made me feel comfortable and thoroughly explained what procedure was needed and why. His work was fantastic; my crown feels and looks very natural! Thanks Dr. Dave, I will be passing along recommendations to my friends and family.”
