Great practice w/ a great staff

Dr. Pass & his staff have treated me with up most service and pro decisions helping my teeth back from many other "chop-shop" offices I've been to. They're very caring & I feel a deep concern over my overall oral health. Thanks!

took perfect care of me-professional,caring, skilled

Dr Pass and Cindy couldn't have made this a better experience. They were thorough, worked well together, thought of and took care of my every need and I think the first stage of my crown is a success and I look forward to the finishing process be the same. I was not afraid but just dreading the procedure but it turned out I wasted time on wasn't bad at all.

Too kind

Almost too gentle - to the point of taking too long to get it done.

Pleasant and efficient.

Staff us always friendly and professional and works with patient to accommodate scheduling needs. New office is bright and airy - good location with pleasing views from the windows (I like trees, sky and stone). Dr. Pass is always pleasant, gracious and very competent in his field. I would gladly recommend his dental practice.
