Fixing my Smile Actually Fixed my Smile

I would highly recommend Dr. Hobbs. I was terrified when I walked in there and left a much happier person. She is kind, caring and takes the time to properly elaborate on what the problem is and what is needed to resolve it. She also has an excellent technique to inject anesthesia whereby I did not even feel the needle touching me. All in all, the experience was pleasant and my teeth are well taken care of - I surely have a new dentist :)

Dr. Hobbs changed my life. Seriously, and sincerely. My four front teeth were so crooked, two of them recessed so badly, that I laughed behind my hand, kept my mouth closed in all photos, and was horribly ashamed of my teeth. After spending just under an hour in her chair, she fixed my teeth for an affordable price, and now I’m learning to laugh and smile with my mouth open. The difference is astounding!

Dr. Hobbs is the best when it comes to anxious/nervous patients! I had avoided the dentist for years before I met her due to my general distrust and dislike of dentists...and now I’m going for regular cleaning and check ups- like a real, live adult! Thanks again, Dr. Hobbs!!

When I tell you I have a fantastic dentist you should see, I want you to completely understand where I’m coming from. Shannon pulled my wisdom teeth without any pain during the procedure and minimal pain and swelling afterwards. Most importantly, she addressed my concerns about freezing not being effective (I felt my fillings that were done by a previous dentist).
