Excellent work, very professional. I like going to the dentist now. I used to have anxiety about going, not any more. Dr. Alex is a class act that is very hard to find. He using only cutting edge procedures that work. Most other dentists try to use everything, regardless of the reliability of the procedure/method. Dr. Alex is truly concerned what is best for the client and devoted to his patients. Everyone in my family now goes to him. This is truly the first dentist I've trusted with my entire family.-Maxwell C.
