  • For years I've hated going to the dentist, particularly to see the hygienist. I put it off for years. When I went in the other day after about a decade between cleanings, I was expecting to get a righteous sermon about how I have obviously not been brushing/flossing correctly and I'd better shape up fast before what teeth I have left fall out. Instead, the technician patiently explained exactly what she was doing as she went along, answered all of my questions and made me feel completely at ease. At the dentist's office, mind you! Will wonders never cease?

  • I needed an emergency appointment 2 days before leaving town and had no local dentist. Dr. York gave me an appointment on extremely short notice, and after normal office hours. She and her assistant made me feel completely comfortable and provided a concise analysis of my situation. She prescribed the medication I needed and answered all of my concerns with humor and compassion.

  • Really appreciate that Dr. York and the staff are so talented.....and friendly.

  • The most painless and stress-free extraction anyone could wish for. 

    - Candices, Lafayette


  • I'm reserving that last star until I have major work done! Dr. York is wonderful, but so far it's only been cleaning (with the best tech- Charise!), and minor drilling. If, at some point it's time for a root canal, and Dr. York doesn't kill me, I'll award the fifth star.
