You feel like you’re visiting friends.

I have been a patient with Dr. Jay for about 17 years now and have nothing but good things to say about him and the rest of the staff in the office. Joyce and Vickie both are a pleasure to interact with while having your teeth cleaned. When the need arises to have work done by Dr. Vandewater he and Jen make the procedure fun and stress free. They even worked with my very nervous daughter until she was comfortable with the whole process. Should you need to reschedule or have an account question Donna is always happy to help providing what ever you need rapidly. You really feel like your visiting friends. Highly recommend these folks to anyone.
