How was your experience with the doctor?It was amazing!!! The whole staff is really nice. I was nervous because I didnt go to the dentist as often as I should. Needed a filling and cleaning.

How was your experience with the doctor?I was very happy with my visit here. The staff was very friendly, polite & professional. my appointment was at ten a.m. I arrived right on time and although I didn't check my watch I doubt the wait was more than 10-15 minutes. By the time I was finished filling out the paperwork they presented me with I was being called in to do my X-rays. I hadn't been to the dentist in a few years after a bad experience I had with a former dentist. So I was very nervous initially but LaRoche & the young woman that assisted her during my procedure made me feel very comfortable, answered any questions or concerns I had & I was in and out in about a half hour. All in all it was a good experience. I'd recommend.

How was your experience with the doctor?After being disappointed with my previous dental provider, I was presently surprised with my first-time visit. The staff is courteous, knowledgable, and upbeat. My regular cleaning was probably the best I've ever had. Andrea was very thorough and made what usually is a "let's get this over with" experience very pleasant. All around great experience; I will probably be staying long-term

How was your experience with the doctor?I went in with pain near one of my root canals and could't figure out the origin of this discomfort and Dr. LaRoche kindly explained what it was and helped me with possible solutions.

How was your experience with the doctor?I was trying to find a new dentist in the area and unfortunately I will most likely not recommend Dr. LaRoche. I always had to wait at least 20-30 minutes after my scheduled appt, and once inside with her, I didn't find her to be gentle and actually would have lots of anxiety during the entire appt. I was disappointed that the office didn't let me know they didn't take my insurance until the 2nd to last appt I had so I ended up having to pay more out of pocket which was completely unexpected.
