    I’ve been a patient for five plus years. I love the office staff and Dr. Prusia, who was recommended to me by a trusted MD. So far, I’ve only had cleanings, xrays, and fluoride but I would highly recommend Dr. Prusia and staff!

    I had a great experience! I was able to give my insurance information over the phone prior to the appointment and my hygienist was gentle and thorough. Dr. Prusia was really helpful and took the time to answer my questions and offer different options for next steps.
