I'm a nervous patient. I used to cancel dental appointments at the last minute just to avoid some judgemental and fearmongering hygienists who would lecture me about dental health issues instead of getting the work done. All this has changed since I've been a patient at Cruzin' Dental in Lehigh Acres office. This morning, I had my regular dental cleaning visit with Mary Lynn Swaska. Everything was done with efficiency and professionalism. Mary Lynn made me feel comfortable. There was no instance of stress of anxiety whatsoever. I wish I had found Cruzin' Dental office sooner because so many damages and headaches would have been prevented. Thank you Mary Lynn and thank you Cruzin' Dental.

I had a great experience today at my visit. Very professional but also sweet and funny. Right away the hygienist informed me on all the details with my oral health. Asked me if I was okay with my co payment, can we start your plan today, to let me check if your insurance will cover this and that. Every single staff member played a part in my visit today. The office staff was very flexible with my schedule needs. I was in and out knowing all the boxes were checked. I left the office as if I made new friends. Very excited to bring my little girl to her first visit with Cruzin Dental next month.
