Four years ago, I had a really bad experience (not at this practice) that left me terrified to go back to the dentist. Needless to say, I was very anxious going into my appointment this morning! But, from the time that I walked into the office, I was put at ease and felt great about my visit. The front desk lady and one of the hygienists were both incredibly friendly and fun, which made me feel better right away. I let Dr. Ku know that I was nervous, and he made me feel much better by explaining everything he was doing/looking at to me, letting me know how I can improve to keep my teeth healthy. He gave me lots of options, but never told me that I HAD to do something, which was really nice and a different experience than I have ever had at the dentist before. When we ended the appointment, I had a full consultation and was able to understand why I needed the treatment that I do vs. them just telling me I need it and slapping a price tag on it. I love this place, and I am no longer afraid of the dentist (it's a miracle!).
