Donal, Wilton

I was so impressed with the way the staff and dentist treated my child – he previously had a bad experience elsewhere and I was apprehensive attending again. The dentist and assistant took such great care of my daughter, I wish to express my deepest appreciation and thanks. They were able to keep my daughter calm and showed her and told her everything they were going to do. Thank you very much! ‘
