  • "I have been going to Dr. Scales for nearly 20 years. Obviously I am one satisfied patient. :)"
    Jeffrey B.
  • "I was greeted with a very friendly welcome by name. After filling out an update on my records, I was immediately greeted by Jenn, my hygienist who did a very thorough oral prophylaxis and explained in detail of what she was doing. She also instructed me on how I can improve what I am doing at home. Dr. Scales came in for examining and explained my future treatment. My proposed treatment plan was given to me at check out. All of the office personnel are so friendly and helpful. As much as I dread going to the dentist, Island Dentistry makes it a pleasant experience. Even the reminders online ahead of time were welcomed. After my visit, I received emails for my future visits and an invitation to write my review."
