best dentist I have ever seen.

WOW! A terrific experience all the way around! Dr. Paten Weinman is by far the best dentist I have ever seen. I wish there were more than 5 stars I could give him. I am going to recommend him to all my friends and family members. From the second I made my initial phone call to book the appointment to the follow up call from Dr. W. afterwords, I truly knew I was in good hands. You really mean it when you say your patients are part of your medical family. I have found my dental care home!
