I’m so glad we found Legacy Family Dental! Everyone greets you with a smile, I continue conversations with the dental hygienist from my last visit and Dr. Place is always both kind and professional, explains options without pressure and really wants the best for her patients. Highly recommend.

My previous dental experiences have caused me lots of dental anxiety. Dr. Place and staff put me at easy as soon as a walked in the door and throughout my entire visit. Dr. Place took time to explain everything to me and made sure I felt comfortable with my treatment plan. So thankful I found Legacy Family Dental!
