I have always had a fear of dental visits until I went to Wilbraham Family Dentistry. The whole office is amazing. If you want a dentist and office that is friendly, caring, helpful, understanding, then this is the office for you. Also, I have never been to a medical office where they make you feel at home, it seems like you've known them for years. They really have helped me fixing my dental problems. All my visits have been positive. It's nice to go the office knowing that they care about their patients.
I wanted to say a very sincere thank you to you and your great staff. Being in the retail business without the teeth is a difficult thing and you took care of me like a pro. You did in a few short weeks what normally is a much longer process and I will never forget how great you took care of me . . . Again, thank you thank you thank you you are truly the best!
