    Alison P

    I’ve been a patient of Dr, Chow’s for 15 years. 11 years ago I moved over an hour away but I still make the 3 hour round trip to the office because it is worth it! The staff is simply the best and the dental care is perfection. In an area that prides itself as being upscale and snooty, this office goes against that grain and consistently provides excellent dental care using state of the art equipment and procedures while being down to earth and genuinely thoughtful and kind.
