Dr. Burgess


"My first impression indeed was accurate of the entire office visit. Right when you walk in you realize it's the MOST PLEASANT Doctor's office you've ever been in. Lovely plants, flowers, twinkle lights, lamp lights and a scented candle provide a lovely, calm waiting experience, and it's gets better after that. Every nurse, desk assistant, and then Dr. Burgess himself was kind, considerate, respectful, and genuine in their service, and they explain everything in detail to you and answer any questions you have. This office has worked hard to go above and beyond the typical dentist office experience, and I find myself looking forward to when I have to go back for another cleaning in 6 months!"
