Dr. Young was great! Along with the rest of his team! My two-year-old son and I went in just for a pre-exam check-up, which I have never experienced before. It was great, no other dentist has been that detailed, made me feel very well taken care of. It's hard to bring my 2-year-old son with me places, but they were able to count all of his teeth and give me some advice on how to help keep up his oral hygiene. After they were done with his teeth, Dr. Young and his dental assistant started to work on mine and before my son could turn their facility into complete chaos and destruction, they put on Mickey Mouse through Netflix on a monitor ( has more functions that just showing us our creepy looking x-rays). And that was just the pre-exam!! we are going back for a cleaning in a couple of months. On the way out they even have a treasure chest that kids can pick out a toy. All in all amazing experience.Kelly TPatient
Out of my 22 years of living, I've been to multiple dentists and this was the first dentist felt like home, as odd as that may sound (I know a lot of people fear the dentist). The girls were amazing and the service matched that. I appreciate a place I can go and feel myself. Thanks, guys!Madelyn S.Patient
Got me in for a partial root canal on short notice and made it work while I was gone on a month's vacation.Bette CPatient
I had a great experience with Dr. Connell. I decided to get veneers on 8 of my top, front teeth, and I wanted to find a dentist that could sedate me and make my smile look great. Dr. Connell and his staff made me feel very comfortable. The sedation worked like a dream and the entire procedure went smoothly. The color we chose for my veneers is perfect and the shape of the veneers really balanced my smile. I am so happy I chose Dr. Connell to be my dentist. I couldn’t have asked for a better experience – I actually enjoy smiling now! Thanks so much!Elen B.Patient
