How was your experience with the doctor?I'm not a huge fan of dentists and have struggled with finding a new one I like and trust. I had my first visit with Dr. Askins and feel very good about my choice! I trust his recommendations and he answered my questions and eased my concerns. PLUS everyone in his office were very nice.

How was your experience with the doctor?It was great. I had pain over the weekend on a tooth and I got an appointment right away on Tuesday, got a root canal done and the infection taken care of almost with no pain. It is my third root canal and I know how painful it can be. Highly recommended!

How was your experience with the doctor?Great office and great dentist. I had an extraction today, and did not feel a thing, despite a broken off root. When my anesthesia wore off, I felt no pain either, and will not need pain meds. Never happened before.

How was your experience with the doctor?All of the staff were very friendly and attentive, overall a positive environment. Some of the assistants were learning but the X-rays etc didn't take too long. The hygienist wasn't there so they were a little behind but Dr. Askins was great, very friendly and answered all of my questions honestly and thoroughly, taking the time to explain causes and effects of certain symptoms. I'm picky when it comes to doctors but the office and dentist were great, will definitely book again for my next checkup!

How was your experience with the doctor?Dr. Askins took extra time answering my questions. He listened and offered a couple of options. Also, his assistant had nice things to say about him after he left the room. Then entire office has a happy atmosphere.

How was your experience with the doctor?I really liked Dr. Askins. I do however have concerns about the solvency of the practice. We discussed the wording of a poster which could very well be taken that they are hurting and desperately need more patients. In addition to the poster, the fact that the dentist "cleaned" my teeth is disconcerting. This makes me think they can't afford enough staff for a hygienist. The last non-action that I thought odd; I wasn't asked if I wanted to make an appointment for my next 6 month visit. On the positive side, all the staff were pleasant and a pleasure to work with.
