    I wasn't happy with my first appointment, although I was 9 minutes late, your refused to see me. I understood this in one way, because I was late. Its when I was told the dentist I had the appointment with already had a patient in with him. So I had to rearrange my appointment. When I went on Thursday, the dentist was excellent very understanding, knowing I have a phobia, and have to take medication before I go. I don't know his name, but would definitely recommend him to anyone .
