We just moved to the area and I have seen 2 other dentist for me and my children. Both were highly disappointing. By real estate agent happen to be who recommended I see Dr. Jessy, and so I did. I must say to help everyone out there searching for a family dentist. This is definitely the one for us. Thanks Dr. Jessy. The boys can’t wait for their next visit.
