Nicole is the best dental hygienist that I’ve ever had! She’s patient, caring, great sense of humor and very professional. She explained what she was doing every step of the way.

This was my first visit to Barnum Dental. It was a very pleasant experience. I had a cleaning done by a wonderful hygienist. She was very thorough and pointed out some things that my previous dentist never did. Thumbs up! The Dentist was kind and friendly. He made me feel at ease. Very clean facility. Sweet front desk staff.
