TESTIMONIALS

Just have to say a very caring dentist who excels in reassuring their patients and gives excellent service, explains what they are doing every step of the way. The best dentist I have ever seen
Our whole family goes to SMILES DHS and all have had great experiences. Our young kids especially like going to see Dr. Gerald to “tickle” their teeth and practice brushing the dragon’s teeth. None of them are scared to go to the dentist and enjoy their visits!.
As a college student living on my own for the first time, I was worried about finding a good dentist in town. Im really happy that I ended up at the SMILES DHS, the staff is super friendly and knowledgeable. .
