Dr. John is amazing! I always hated going to the dentist until he became the one I worked with. He is extremely gentle when he works and provides a nice environment to be in. I’ve grown to trust him with anything I have had done at the dentist office and would highly recommend him to anyone! If you are looking for a friendly dentist who is trustworthy and has gentle hands then Dr. John is the one to go with. Thanks for living up to what a dentist should be!

He really knows his stuff. Not only is he gentle but he makes going to the dentist a RELAXING experience (the bright lights are covered with pictures of clouds that put you to ease). Professional, knowledgeable, and the staff is very attentive. He found a cavity and showed it to me on digital x-ray and through an HD camera. He explained everything to me including his treatment plan so I felt comfortable with the whole experience WONDERFUL.

Dr. J is the best! Always makes me feel comfortable and he actually listens to you as opposed to some other dentists out there. And you should see him with kids, they love him. I came in with some family (nieces and nephews) and they had so much fun. Even the difficult one, Dr. John was able to get him calm and was sooo patient. His mom works in the same office too so its like a nice family feeling.
–Mark N.
I recently saw Dr. Nakhla for a couple of fillings and I was very impressed with the care he gave. He took the time to explain everything to me in great detail and answered every question I had thoroughly. He is very kind and he cared a great deal about my comfort during the procedure. Dr. Nakhla followed up with my after my appointment and I felt he was very invested in my well-being. I highly recommend him!
