What Patients Are Smiling About

They are fast, efficient, and friendly making dental care a positive experience.

Very efficient so I was in and out quickly. I very much appreciate that. All the while very informative and courteous!

AWESOME! My cleaning went really good and did NOT have pain afterwards. My son Mikey's appointment also went really good and no one had to call me for assistance. I recommend FDC for anyone looking for a GREAT dentist.

The people here work hard to keep any discomfort to a minimum!!!! They understand how some patients have become hypersensitive to dental work.
