How was your experience with the doctor?Dr. Raffa and her dental technicians are kind, child-centered and very patient. Her mild-mannered way and calm presence puts my kids instantly at ease. The waiting room has some fun kid activities and the dental rooms are definitely kid-oriented, but its not "overdone." Our prior dentist had screens on the ceiling, mobiles popping out of the walls, etc. and it was too much stimulus...their space is much calmer but kid friendly....my kids LOVE going to see Dr. Raffa.
