After loving my prior dentist so much I was willing to drive from Austin to Houston for checkups, I am so grateful to have found a new home with the Meadows staff! Friendly, compassionate, and patient, I've been nothing but pleased with my experiences.M.W.
I am one of those people who hate going to the dentist, but after being seen here twice, I can say my nerves are gone! Everyone I have dealt with, from the front desk to the hygienists to the doctor, have been amazing. I highly recommend and am actually looking forward to my next visit.A.E.
