"I just got my wisdom teeth out today and I had such an awesome experience. I was so nervous going in there but the staff was wonderful. They talked to me, joked with me, and was just super patient with all my questions. The one lady even took a picture with me, walked me to the car, and gave me a hug. Can’t even put into words how appreciative I am for the staff that helped me today. Thank you DW!"- A.H. / Google / Sep 15, 2018
