    How was your appointment with Dr. Short?

    Jul 16, 2020
    People ask me why I travel over an hour for dental care. First of all, Dr. Short is proficient in his communication, treatments and procedures. His office is run with customer service as a priority. His staff are friendly, happy and professional. Above all, I feel safe because of all of the COVID precautions being observed there.
