How was your experience with the doctor?Friendly and informative. She came highly recommended to me by another dentist and I now know why - she is the best! She was very knowledgeable and wasn't pushy at all. Answered all my questions.

How was your experience with the doctor?Dr. Elward was amazing! I had only been to one dentist my entire life, so this was my first time with a different dentist. I explained I had not been in quite a while (too long). She was patient, and very accommodating. I mentioned I had sensitivity, and she offered to use a topical numbing cream, as well as a fast acting Novocain for the cleaning. Dr. Elward checked in to see how I was doing throughout the process. Upon completion, she talked through technical tactics, and personally set up a new appointment for me, and a consultation for another procedure. I will definitely be back!
