Dr. Bruce and her staff are the MOST caring professionals that I have ever dealt with in the dental industry! They are knowledgeable, attentive and patient. Prior to finding Dr. Bruce, my dental visits were traumatic. Even though I am still terrified of needles, the service they give makes it better. Highly recommended.
