Take a look at what people are saying about Dr. Justin:

“As always, our experience with Dr. Justin was excellent. Dr. Justin is a one-of-a-kind doctor that is hard to find. He is great with children and always makes our daughter feel relaxed and excited about going to the dentist. I would recommend Dr. Justin to everyone – any day!”  

“Dr. Justin is amazing!! So professional and welcoming. Dr. Justin is an exceptional pediatric dentist. My daughter has had 4 teeth extracted and I knew she was in good hands. She absolutely loves going to the dentist.” 

“Dr. Justin is by far the best pediatric dentist we have ever met! My son is 11-years-old and has Down Syndrome with extreme sensory issues. We’ve tried three dentists in his lifetime. Some couldn’t even get him in a chair or open his mouth to look at his teeth. Others were forceful to check for cavities. Yet, because of the gentle and oh-so-patient nature of Dr. Justin, my son walked himself into the dental chair completely on his own and laid there for a complete dental examination and teeth cleaning. It was a miracle! And then in the car on the way home, I asked my son, “Do you like Dr. Justin?” He replied, “He’s my BEST FRIEND!” Thank you, Dr. Justin, for making such a huge difference in our lives!”

We are dedicated to giving each of our patients the healthy smile they deserve!
