It took me over 20years to get to the dentist. If I would have known Dr. Ascano was out there I would have gone sooner. From the very first visit he took all my fears away and made me feel comfortable and at ease. I am actually excited now to go see him and his staff. His staff is amazing and make you feel like you are the most important patient they have. I highly recommend Dr. Asano to those, like me, who were terrified of the dentist. I love this place.

This was my first time visiting this Dental office. The staff and Dr. Was great. Dr. Ray was awesome with explaining what was going on with my teeth and why I was having the pain. Ms. Donna was the best she made me feel at ease when prepping me for the Dr. To see me. She was very pleasant and caring. She was just a joy to be around. Ms Courtney was very nice also giving me good advice and explaining in details what was my options secondary to not having Dental Insurance. All and all this was the best Dental visit I ever had. If you visit here u will not be disappointed they truly have an awesome team that cares and it shows.

I went I went in for my appointment and they said to me I had three teeth that needed to be pulled I sort of freaked out for a minute and then when she started she explained to me that the needle was the worst part which it was in the whole time she was working on my teeth she was saying things like beautiful good we’re almost there and that help relax me so much the next day I’m fine I have no pain it was just an amazing experience glad I don’t have to do it again
