I have been going to see Janet for my dental hygiene/cleaning appointments for almost 20 years. My latest cleaning was today.I cannot express in a review how... impressed I am with the level of care and concern I receive regularly at Bayview Village Dental Associates. The staff all make you feel welcome and appreciated. Though I moved almost 2 years ago, I still happily make the 90-minute drive from my new home, twice a year, to visit Bayview. Though my dentist has recently retired, I am now connected with a new dentist and I expect to continue to make Bayview my dental care "home", at least as long as Janet is there. She is the best ! When you are due for a dental hygiene/cleaning appointment, ask to make a reservation with Janet. She is very well experienced, does an impeccable job and is the nicest person you will ever meet. I just love her !read more
