Dr. Blair and staff were wonderful. I was scared to death since I had a bad experience with another dentist. He and his staff made me very comfortable and explained everything. I had multiple teeth pulled and everyone was amazing. I am 100% satisfied and have already referred a family member and would recommend to anyone. Thanks so much to everyone.
