"I had the best experience since my childhood dentist. I don't like dentist since I had a very bad experience at a dentist office in town that scolded me for having cavities. Dental Works were amazing from start to finish even Dr. Stelzer hugged me afterwards to reassure me everything was fine. They even knew how to deal with my insurance. They even made my appt for my root canal for me. I mean it was like family on the first visit. I'm so thrilled to have found a dental home!!
