"We have been going to this dentist for a long time, and he is excellent. My husband used to avoid dentists for years previously, but after talking to Dr. Nugent, he worked with him in finding ways to make him comfortable, and he has been going regularly every 6 months since with no problem. It has probably saved his dental health because of that!"
