  • Dr. Jim, Dr. Jon, and Peggy: I can’t tell you how happy Mother Mary is with her new smile. It was the best 88th birthday present she could have received. Not only does she now smile fully (hasn’t done that for as long as I can remember), but she looks ten years younger and says she feels at least ten years younger. She is one happy camper, and you guys are the absolute best. Thank you, thank you, thank you.

  • I am having Dr. Jon King take out old fillings and replace them with new white ones. He is fast, friendly and really funny. I am an adult, but am seriously glad that he's a dad. His attitude towards his patients is kind and caring. I actually was laughing so hard today that I had to sit up in the middle of two replacement fillings. Even with the laughing and silliness I was out of there in an hour.

  • I have been going to King Dental for about 3 years now and I am so happy! They are so passionate and kind, and I always look forward to my appointments. Can't say enough good things about them!
