I have been coming to this dental office for many years... from back when it was Dr. Dunsworth. When he retired and sold the business, he did so to a truly great team: Dustin and Emily Dodds, both DDS. The same super friendly staff remains plus some additions. They're all wonderful and I'm sure I can speak for the other clients as well when I say that they do a magnificent job on everyone's teeth. Here's your family dentist team, and you could not find a better one.

I had the best dental visit at this office. The entire staff is so friendly and professional, and the both Dr. Emily Dodds and Dr. Dustin Dodds are extremely professional and knowledgable. I was late for my appointment and Dr. Emily Dodds took me in after being 25 minutes late due to traffic and did a through and excellent job with my teeth. She stayed late after the office closed which is truly remarkable, and much appreciated. You can tell that she actually really cares about her patients!!
