It was a great experience for both of us

The entire visit was amazing, my wife had a fear of going to the dentist. He made her feel comfortable from the very beginning. He was gentle, explained everything in full detail. It was a great experience for both of us. We would definitely recommend Dr. Davis to everyone and will be going back to him for any and all dental work.
