"Awesome and very friendly team! Everyone was so nice and caring. I was a new patient coming in with a cracked tooth. I had an enormous amount of pain, and they were very gentle. Dentist provided me a couple options and provided me her best opinion with pros and cons. The doctor even provided me with a contact number to call her directly if my pain became too intense over the holiday weekend. Highly recommend. Dr. Borale is wonderful! Donna, in the front office, was the best!"- J.A. / Google / Nov 21, 2018

"The staff at DWTC made me feel like a very valued patient. From the check in to check out, I was treated with dignity and professionalism. The technicians deployed some very innovative procedures which allayed some dental hang ups I had for years. And the dentist went to great lengths to explain the recommended dental treatment plan I would require. Although this was my first visit to this dental clinic, I was immediately accepted and treated as a long time customer. I will make this my permanent dental home and will recommend it to all my relatives and friends. Thank you DWTC for making my dental visit so comfortable."- R.L. / Google / Nov 16, 2018
