"Everybody here is just like family. Dr. Locker is great. I have had my teeth whitened, I have had crowns, I’ve had root canals, I’ve had cavities worked on and he explains why he does what he does and what he does is better for you. He alleviated all of my fears when I come in, I don’t have a problem sitting in the chair. I think they are great. I love Dr. Locker and I love the staff!"

"The staff, I know you hear it from a lot of different places is friendly, but they are friendly here. They are very nice and will bend over backward to help you if you can’t make it and they really take good care of you. He will not use certain materials to fill your because like you said, although they are good, they are a little bit substandard compared to other items the he will use."

Tom W.

"Every time I have a problem, he fixes it. I had a tooth that literally somehow cracked and fell apart in my mouth and I freaked out. I called them up and they brought me in he looked at it and temporarily repaired it and made an appointment, a longer appointment because this was just a quick fix and he literally gave me a new tooth and built that tooth back up. After that, not a problem since!"
