Patient Reviews

Dr. Prasad has really changed the way I feel about going to the Dentist. You are always making sure that I am comfortable. I went years without going to the Dentist when I was younger, and you definitely made me comfortable. You are kind and have great chair side manners. I even recommended my mom, my husband, and my kids. Keep doing what you are doing!

I have major anxiety about coming to dental visits. Dr. Prasad has been the only Dentist that puts me at ease. She is very patient and listens to her clients. Highly recommend!

I have been seeing Dr. Prasad for 15+ years and I’ve never been disappointed with the service or professionalism. I actually enjoy coming to see her. My wife has been a patient for 15+ years as well. Definitely my favorite Dentist Ever!!
