Happy Smiles,
Happy Clients

It gives me great pleasure to write a testimonial about the impeccable service I have received since becoming a patient at Dr. Skinner’s dental clinic. Upon making my first appointment, I was immediately put at ease when the receptionist answered all my questions and concerns. At no point was I made to feel that my questions were irrelevant. Having had some bad experiences at previous dental offices, I was somewhat wary of starting over at a brand new dental office. All of my fears disappeared when I arrived at the office with ease, found ample parking, was greeted by the friendly staff, and sat down in a comfortable reception area. The receptionist helped me get all the information prior to my arrival. This made the forms easy to fill out. After that, the dental hygienist whisked me into the chair. She was awesome. My teeth never felt so clean! The dental hygienist took me through every step of the process, and made sure I had an opportunity to address any concerns I might have. After that Dr. Skinner came in and carefully checked my teeth. I loved the fact that she gave me options and carefully discussed long term care with me. I have now been at Third Street Dental for a few years, and all my experiences continue to be great. Since my first visit, I have had some corrective cosmetic work done on my teeth. Dr. Skinner handled everything with the utmost care. She fully understood what I wanted. Then she made suggestions for me to consider. Dr. Skinner took great care to make my teeth beautiful. Her work is impeccable. I highly recommend you check out Third Street Dental.
