  • "I absolutely did not want to go to the dentist.I had (un)successfully avoided going for years until it became a fear I had to overcome or figure out a way in which to live with my growing constant tooth pain. THANKFULLY I went to Dr. Sims and EVERYONE WAS WONDERFUL, PERSONAL AND PROFESSIONAL! I too was doubtful, frighten and scared of what the reality of my avoiding the dentist would be…then I met Dr Sims, he and his staff made everything alright!"
    Derek S.
  • "I am no fan of going to the dentist. At all. I have avoided it if at all possible and am now suffering the consequences… eek! I was immediately put at ease here; everyone is super friendly and makes you feel comfortable. I have a bit of anxiety and guilt about my teeth, but Dr. Sims didn’t make me feel any shame or embarrassment. The procedures I had were done quickly and efficiently and all while watching Ellen on the little TV they have. I couldn’t believe how fast it went by. I traveled way out of my neighborhood to go here, and I’ll continue to do so…it’s worth it!"
    Victoria V.
