I normally go to the YV office but today I went to the PD location. Maggie and Dr. Moranda put on my brackets and lower permanent retainer. Both of them were very polite and professional. On top of my care, I had my 3 month old son with me. All of the staff were very generous and kind to my son and helped keep him cool and occupied while I was getting treatment. Overall, this place is very nice and family friendly. Thank you!
I always receive a job well done! All of my questions are answered to my satisfaction before I make a decision in the care that I am offered. All of the staff are professional, friendly, and detail-oriented in guaranteeing that their job is done to the highest quality. I travel to receive care here because other locations do not make what I need for dental night guards.
