As a person who has had a long held fear of dentistry, I honestly say that I had no apprehension about seeking out treatment. I was made to feel very comfortable. Dr Vorhees made me feel very comfortable and was more personable than clinical. Excellent chair side demeanor. I would highly recommend this practice.Grady W.
