First time dental patient at this practice as I recently moved to TexasI was treated warmly and had an easy check in processI was then immediately escorted to the exam room where I met with Dr. SaundersWe agreed on a treatment plan process as well as follow up appointments. I was able to chose a date and time convenient within my work schedule for a more concentrated dental procedureGreat experience
Dr. Saunders has taken great care of my periodontal disease. He uses state of the art equipment (e.g. laser) and the whole staff is friendly and they do a great job. Appointments are always on time. I have been going there for four years and have maintenance/cleaning appointments every six months. My perio is greatly improved and I highly recommend Dr. Saunders.
I’ve had two tooth extractions with Dr. Saunders over the span of 4 years. I like Dr. Saunders because he’s incredibly knowledgeable and has great patient care skills. He put my mind completely as ease when I came to his office for a consultation/second opinion. His staff treats you with kindness and respect that I haven’t seen elsewhere. His practice is a true reflection of the passion and years Dr. Saunders has poured into it. I would highly recommend.
Arrived early. Seen early. Dental tech took the time to explain what was being done and provided welcome advice on how to improve my dental techniques at home. Waited only a few moments between end of cleaning and arrival of Dr Sanders who conducted an exam. WELL DONE.
Dr. Saunders and his team are excellent! I’m a nervous Nellie when it come to dentistry , especially if surgery is required. He and his whole team were kind, patient and capable. If I had a concern it was addressed immediately. I even got a hug from Jill!! I highly recommend Periodontal Center of Excellence - Dr. Kip Saunders!
I wasn't looking forward to having my tooth extracted, (who does, right?) but Dr. Saunders and his awesome assistant, Roxy are top notch. I didn't have a choice, about my tooth BUT I did have a choice where I went. Thank you for a painless experience. Roxy's pat on my shoulder was comforting, as well as Dr S. describing what he was doing. No anxiety at all! I highly recommend your practice.
