    Excellent staff and a peaceful atmosphere. Dr. Nix is a kind, gentle man who listens to your concerns. Even though I have anxiety with dental care everyone was thoughtful and understanding of my quirky anxiety. Great big thank you to all of you.

    I have used Dr. Nix for many years. He is an excellent dentist. At least 10 years ago he gave me dental implants on my bottom teeth. I have never had any problem with his work. He is staff is courteous and helpful.
