    I never knew I could enjoy a trip to the dentist but everyone here is so genuinely kind and helpful. You can tell they really care about you. They always remember me and little details about my life which makes it even more special. They are amazing people and so good at their jobs!                                                      


    Very anxious and almost worried about my crown I was about to receive early this morning based on my past two experiences at other Dental Offices. Decided to try Dr. Harvey's Dentistry and trust my procedure to Dr. Brown. She was absolutely wonderful and reinforced by a great assistant Jessica. The procedure lasting a while was totally painless and am doing very well this afternoon. Still don't enjoy the drill in my tooth and feeling tooth parts leave my head but these girls have some kind of relaxing demeanor that really helped me through the procedure.
    I have never been more relaxed sitting in a Dentist's Chair and so glad I chose this Dental Practice.
    Finally, upon arrival and the departure you are met with the Fairest Maiden of them All, Mrs. Libby. She is so pleasant and knowledgable and answered all of my financial and Insurance questions.
