Great friendly office!

I always look forward to my visits to Dr. DuRoss. The staff is friendly and always eager to answer your questions. They have a small staff that has been together for many years. You always know who you're going to see. You don't have to settle for who happens to be available the day you want to come in. It's not hard to get an appointment, they make the time to fit you in if you have an emergency. No pressure to do work immediately, if it's something Dr. DuRoss thinks you can observe.

Best dentistry team for the fearful and committed alike!

Heading to the dentist can be a much-dreaded experience, but Dr. DuRoss and his staff make the visits very comfortable from start to finish. No lectures to the patients -- just first-rate care, Dr. Du Ross and the assistants address the patient's medical needs while also maintaining a vital human connection that fosters trust in the process. Because this office takes my insurance, services are also affordable. When life got busy for me, I fell behind on my dental care, but Dr. DuRoss and his team got me caught up on all care, and now I feel so much better about my health and smile. I doubt if you can find a better office for your family's dental care.
