What Our Clients Say About Us

  • "“Before Dr. Morris placed my porcelain crowns on my front teeth, I was unable to bite through a sandwich, carrots, pickles and other foods. My upper teeth did not meet my lower teeth. With the enamel having been worn off my teeth, not only could I not bite through anything, my teeth just looked awful! Now my teeth look great and I can bite through all the foods that had given me problems!”"
    ~Jim Patterson
  • "Dr. Vilag provided me with excellent care when I needed it the most."
