It was a great experience getting crown work from Dr. Austin. Usually, I go to Dr. Wu and am extremely satisfied working with him, but because he didn't have an opening when I chipped my tooth, I worked with Dr. Austin instead.”

From reading all the five-star reviews on here, I decided to give this place a shot. Today was my first visit, but I instantly felt very comfortable. Everybody I interacted with was very friendly, knowledgeable, and helpful! Lastly, I met Dr Wendy Austin. She explained everything that was going on with my teeth in detail, including things my last dentist missed! She addressed all my concerns and made me feel at ease.”
