    Dr. Bridges always takes the time to discuss any questions or concerns I have

    I’ve been going to The Smile Station for almost two years. The staff is one of the friendliest of any Doctor’s office I’ve visited. Dr. Bridges always takes the time to discuss any questions or concerns I have. Smile Station goes above making their patients feel at ease.
