      A lot of people fear the dentist but sitting in the chair is the easy part, lay down, open your mouth and they take great care of you. What makes this office so great is the before and after. The ladies at the desk are a pleasure and very accommodating. Appointments, billing & insurance are all made much easier. Think about it,

      Dr. Kaufman was amazing!! He is honest, professional and the most caring doctor! He even called the house at 9:30 that night to check on me. I was very nervous but he put on music that I like, spoke to me throughout the procedure to make sure I was comfortable and to take my mind off of what he was doing. The best!!!
