Dr. Bako and staff are always cheerful and welcoming. They are supportive to the needs of each individual family member and my kids actually don’t mind attending their appointments… 😁
Front desk and assistants are very pleasant and friendly!! Dr. Bako is great, I had to see Dr. Khorana as an emergency she was thorough, informative and took care of my tooth issue, I'd see her again!
They are great at getting me in when emergencies pop up. Very clean, and pleasant. They have fair pricing.
