Our patients say.
"Creekside Dental was so welcoming. Dr. Gabe was great today. A quick appointment was needed to deal with an infection. I needed a new dentist because my long time dentist retired, transfer his patient to another guy, who is retiring right now. Dr. Gabe is young enough that I could hope that he’ll be here for me for a long time. Dr. Gabe was very gentle with that scary-cat. The office is modern from its use of technology to the beautiful and very clean offices. They are located right in the neighborhood, just off Louisiana Blvd with plenty parking. I forgot to do a session in the massage chair in the waiting area. Now I must return."
"After a terrible experience at another dentist, I was fortunate enough to secure an appointment at Creekside. After five days and nights of excruciating pain caused by a dried and infected socket I am finally pain free!! Doctor Hamilton and her staff took EXCELLENT care of me! 🌹🌹🌹🌹I am forever grateful🌹🌹🌹🌹"
