Having just adopted two young boys, getting dental care up to par was a priority. The boys disagreed. They had only had very negative experiences and were crying at the thought of going to the dentist. Upon arriving, the ladies talked with the boys and teased out smiles. The first cleanings took a whiledue to lack of proper hygiene, but Dr. Strickland adn his team took the time to comfort, build rapport and teach the boys about good dental hygiene. We just finished the final fillings with no anxiety or tears. Dental appointments are taken in stride! Dr. Strickland and his great team have made a huge difference to my family. Thank you for making our smiles beautiful!

My daughter Debbie is a dental hygienist and we Readings and the Bass family know a good dentist when we use them ( Jeff )! Dr. Strickland and his entire staff are "the most to say the least". We would not think of using anyone else.

Dr. Strickland & Staff:

I want to share my happiness with you all about my decision to switch dental providers a little over 1 year ago.

My only regret is " why did I wait so long?".

Each of you make each visit an extremely pleasurable experience. Dr. Strickland, I love your "chair-side" manner and your attention to detail is outstanding. I find myself looking forward to my dental appointments rather than dreading the session.

The warm and welcoming greetings along with the family-like interaction that your patients receive from Mary Virginia, Beth, Deirdre, Kyline and
Jennifer are endearing and make me feel like a family member, rather than just another patient!

It all is such a pleasant and comforting experience.
