How likely are you to recommend Dr. Short?

(Select your rating)
People ask me why I travel over an hour for dental care. First of all, Dr. Short is proficient in his communication, treatments and procedures. His office is run with customer service as a priority. His staff are friendly, happy and professional. Above all, I feel safe because of all of the COVID precautions being observed there.
