Frankly, I was apprehensive seeing a new Dentist after Ron Spain retired ( even though Dr Messenger looks a whole better), but I have come to the conclusion that this practice, AND THE STAFF, are perfect for me....a little crazy, but considering my phobia for dentists, they allow me to feel a little more "at ease"...
