Patient Testimonials About Dr. Young
“I’ve always had a fear of Dentists – actually not the Dentists themselves but the pain they inflict. That is until I visited Dr. Young’s office. I was so impressed with that first visit that I changed my insurance policy just so I could use them. Because during that first visit, while I was in the examination chair being told that my insurance wasn’t accepted there, Dr. Young continued to consult with me on the problem and potential solutions, even though he wasn’t getting paid for that visit. Their customer service got me to be a customer and their service has and will keep as a customer.”
I only wish I had them as my Dentists years ago. Anyone that has had a bad experience with a Dentist needs to visit Dr. Young and his amazing staff. You will be a convert as well. Thank you for my pain-free smile!!” – Steve D.
