Patient Testimonials
  • Azalea Dental is, without a doubt, the best dentist office I have ever been to. The staff is professional, courteous, and very easy to talk to and work with. They have televisions on the ceiling for crying out loud (I'm a former Army guy, so anything beyond whiskey and a stick to squeeze is good. Televisions on the ceiling is exceeding the standard).
