Dr. Gore and his staff and the BEST! I've been a patient now for about 4 years and I can't say enough good about this fabulous team. I am probably the world's worst dentist patient - I get serious panic attacks, etc. - but they always know just what to say and do to make me feel good. I've had a rocky few years with some dental complications stemming all the way from childhood, but Dr. Gore has always been there for me (even showing up at the office on the weekend in an emergency once). I feel as if he and my lovely hygienist Shawna truly care about me. I actually come away smiling. I highly recommend them for anyone, even those who dread going to the dentist.

LOVE Ohana and Katie rocks! The salon is great, clean, with a fun vibe. Love the shoulder, neck, scalp and hand massages with every service. My cut is perfect, my color is perfect. For such a great salon, it's amazing that the prices are very reasonable as well. Top notch!
