“Going to the dentist shouldn’t be this easy! Fast, friendly, thorough, and a pleasure to visit. I’ve been a patient for nearly 25 years at Dr. Andrew’s. You couldn’t pay me to go to another dentist!”
Louis D., patient of Dr. James Andrews
“I have been going to Dr. Andrews for 18 years so have the benefit of time to know the caliber of care he provides. He is often ahead of the curve when it comes to new technologies and procedures. He has a steady and confident hand. Key members of his staff have been there almost as long as he’s been in practice — that is no accident.”
