Here’s why our patients recommend us

“I have to say this office has really impressed me. Dr. Saher is wonderful. She is very precise and complete in her diagnoses. And she seems to have such a genuine love for the children and her office. Dr. Saher’s assistants are very helpful and kind to the children. The other positive that really stuck out to me about the office was her receptionist Paula. Paula has been kind to our family since the moment we first called the office. She really takes steps to go above and beyond, to make your visits as easy as possible. All the times I have been in the office, she has been pleasant, happy and helpful. And I noticed that this is not just to me, but to the other staff and patients. Our family is very happy that we made the move to Dental Care for Children!!!”
