After having many negative dental experiences, I’ve really enjoyed coming to CTDC. I have pretty bad dentist anxiety, especially since you can’t tell if the dentist is honest or a conman as the patient in the chair. My experience, thus far, has been wonderful and I am at the point where I trust the dentist and would follow through with any of his recommendations. Thanks CTDC team!L.T.
I’m very anxious and was met with understanding and gentle care by everyone here. Very grateful I found this place.J.T.
