How to Maintain Your Toothbrush Properly?
I had some bad dental experiences as a child and didn't go to a dentist for 10 years because of my fear. Dr. Iskol is very patient and understanding, and now I no longer fear going to the dentist. The front office staff is great too!
Had my first visit and they lived up to their reviews! Great staff, great Doctor. Got a lot to do but they didn't make me feel overwhelmed. I'm just relaxing and going for the ride.
I feel like family when I come to receive my treatment. I never experienced any problems with customer service from my hygienist down to the receptionist. Dr. Iskol and his treatment plan has help me regain my smile. Thank you!!
