  • "I have been going to Dr. Scales for nearly 20 years. Obviously I am one satisfied patient. :)"
    Jeffrey B.
  • "Dr. Scales is a wonderful dentist. I have avoided the dentist due to my jaw issues. I have not been able to open my mouth fully. I finally went to see him and he was so comforting. He didn't make me feel like I was an issue and actually diagnosed an issue with my jaw bone causing the limited range. I'm looking forward to getting fully functional again. I highly recommend him especially if you're a little nervous to see the dentist."
    Dana H.
  • "The best measuring tool is my daughter and she told me that was one of the best appointments she ever had. Great job guys!"
