Our patients say.
“Not all dentist are created equally. Having the knowledge to handle dental needs and having compassion for patients should go hand and hand. Oftentimes just a few extra words of encouragement can soothe the anxiety that accompanies dental work. This is what I received at Family Dental. I no longer have as much trepidation when I have procedures and exams. My children also feel comfortable and that means a lot. The professionalism of the front desk staff is on point. There is no air of pressure and they are polite and courteous. The dental hygienist I have encountered have been friendly smiling young ladies who brighten the office.”
“I had a very positive experience at family dental office. They made me feel very comfortable there was no pains and pulling this tooth. It was little swelling which they told me about! They welcome me from the greeter to the billing. Thank you so much for that experience!”
“The best dentist appointment I have ever had. The environment was welcoming, the staff were polite, professional and overall amazing. Dr. Sim was awesome. I can't wait for my next visit.”
“The complete staff at this office are amazing. They welcome you with complete confidence. I am the type of patient that becomes very anxious at dentist visits. But the dentist and his staff are very comforting and talk to you through everything they are doing. They take the time to reassure you through every step of the way. I believe I truly just found myself a new dentist. If you’re like me with being anxious you should really give this dentist and his staff a try you won’t regret it. ❤️ I walked into his office in tremendous pain and walked out with a root canal with no pain. 😁”
“I've been a patient at Family Dental Care for many years, I would say at least 20 years. Great service! The staff is amazing, always helpful and happy to provide service with a smile. If you are looking for a dentist, Dr. Sim is amazing. He is always so nice and takes care of his patients like family!”
