I have recently moved to Hickory, and like many things “new“ a Dental Office was on my list. How thrilled am I now that I chose Valley hills Dentistry! This morning my visit with Julia, the hygienist was most informative, efficient and comfortable. She explained every element of the new patient procedures, and gave me tips for a product I have been contemplating. Meeting Dr. Mitchell was also a beneficial experience as he assessed my prior dental decisions and discussed going forward. The receptionist was most welcoming when I arrived and as I was leaving. The team is very professional, very concerned about the patient and asks all the important questions if one happens to be new. Valley Hills Dentistry is a good choice for those of us who want to maintain healthy teeth.
Dr. Shaw is young but knows what he is doing. Staff are friendly. Dental assistant that I was with a lot for my crown is very nice and shows that she cares. Office is modern and clean.
Staff is very friendly and caring and the dentist there is very gentle didn’t feel a thing
