“I want to express my sincere thanks to you for restoring my smile and giving me back the confidence and self-acceptance that I had lost. Arriving at my first appointment was difficult, but you and your staff made me feel at ease. It was hard to accept that over time, my teeth became worn down in the front and my smile had changed. I used to hide from the camera and became very self-conscious. I am so pleased and thankful for the work that you did for me; it has truly transformed me. Your office staff and special care made me feel totally at ease and comfortable. I even look forward to my visits and cleanings!”

“I’ve been seeing Dr. Daren since I was 10 years old (so going on 22 years now!) and every member of my family goes to this office as well. Everyone is professional and friendly and I’m greeted by name whenever I walk in the door. I can honestly say that Dr. Daren, Ellen, Lynn and the rest of the crew at this practice legitimately care about their patients and give them the best care possible. I would recommend this office to anyone!”

Her caring personality and gentile touch are very comforting. She has great skill mastery and is continually striving to keep up with the latest dental techniques. Her practice houses modern equipment along with a skilled, welcoming staff. I highly recommend Dr. Daren.” –
