what are our patients saying?
Great service, knowledgeable doctor. I visited Optima Dental Spa and was incorrect told the basic service I needed to be provided was not covered by insurance. At Optima they took three unnecessary x-rays. Dr. v was more knowledgeable and didn’t require x-rays to cement my crown back on. Highly recommend him.
Dr. Varadi and his team are absolutely amazing! Dr. V is very thorough and compassionate and leads your experience with step by step process, so there’s no surprises. I would definitely recommend Dr. Varadi and his team.
Dr. Mitchell is a great dentist. He is thorough and I always feel confident that I am getting the best care. His staff are also very good at what they do including periodontal work and insurance management. Dr. Mitchell's practice is an excellent choice.
