Patient Reviews

Special Needs Child, SUPER Caring Staff
The dentists and staff at CDCY are AMAZING! I have a special needs child, who received a kidney transplant, has a cleft lip and palate, among numerous other medical issues, and the staff at CDCY are so caring, kind, and patient. They take time to make you comfortable in every way, and went above and beyond to help my son when he couldn’t hold still for the panoramic x-ray. Thank you all so much for everything!  ~ Megan F.

Total Competence and Compassion
My son was referred to CDCY for several cavities and problems. I was shell shocked to say the least but they reassured me this was something they could easily handle. They treated my son, who has autism, with such expertise and care. He was happy and relaxed. Then they put together a treatment plan and put the wheels in motion. Every single person I met was absolutely wonderful and kind, but more importantly they were extremely capable in their positions. From the front desk to Dr. Dave, this team is amazing. It is obviously a well-run office. I feel at ease knowing he is in capable hands now.  ~ Molly B.

Fantastic Care
My autistic daughter is treated like a princess. The hygienists and doctors are exceptionally patient and understanding. They talk to her throughout the visit and go out of their way to make her appointments as comfortable as possible. Not only are they very professional, they are good people and I am glad they are a part of her life.  ~ Ed K.
