I Enjoyed Going to a Dentist...What?!

A friend referred me to Dr Icard after I had a particularly difficult time getting prepared for crowns at another dentist. Upon meeting Dr Icard and his team the first time, I immediately felt more at ease. The office is bright and pleasant, and the front office staff is incredibly kind and friendly. Dr Icard himself, exudes calm confidence. He is incredibly knowledgeable, while at the same time, immediately open and approachable. His office is set up with very high tech equipment, all aimed at giving the patient the best dental experience possible. Even the administration of anesthetic was as completely relaxed and pain free as I’ve EVER experienced. As I was waiting for my crowns to be built (he builds them right there in his office, so I had everything done in one appointment!) he checked on me to make sure I was comfortable and throughout the visit, seemed genuinely invested in the comfort of his patient. I suggest you try his office for your next dental procedure, I believe you may decide you actually LIKE going to the dentist!
