In addition to an investment in cutting-edge technology, Dr. Naylor accomplishes her goal with a first-rate staff. “My biggest achievement has been finding the right people,” she notes. “In our daily meetings, we stress our priorities, which are being genuine, true, and kind. Our patients are first, and I have a staff that shares that mentality.”

I actually look forward to my cleanings because it’s always a great experience and my teeth look and feel so good when I leave. The office itself is inviting and relaxing, it’s a super nice touch. The office staff is friendly and accommodating. Jennifer knows you by name the minute you walk in the door. I saw a different hygienist, Chelsea, this visit and she was fantastic from start to finish. Dr. Naylor and Dr. Brooks are both so nice, they always have a smile to share and of course are thorough and thoughtful about what is going on with my teeth each visit. April always has an answer for any questions or concerns about services with regard to my insurance and even though I’ve completed my Invisalign program with Erin, she always checks in with me when I come for my cleanings to make sure all is still going well. As always, another stress free trip to the dentist!–Deborah D.   (Patient since 2016)

Everything about this practice is 5 star. From the moment you arrive, you are greeted in a friendly and professional manner in a warm and inviting environment. I have never had to wait in the lobby more than 3 minutes before being taken back for my appointment (despite being late). Dr. Naylor and staff are gentle, and listen to your concerns. They accommodated my request to not use Epinephrine because it makes me extremely uncomfortable, and overall my pain during treatment was minimal. In the past, I have always experienced substantial pain or aching for weeks to months after major dental work. Recently, I had 2 crowns placed over fractured teeth, and a major filling in a molar tooth without a single bit of residual pain. Follow up was also excellent as they checked to make sure everything was doing alright the next day. I finally feel like I have found a dental practice that I can trust. I would highly recommend giving Dr. Nicole and her team your trust for your dental care needs.–Dr.Stephen G.   (Patient since 2019)
