“I love the family atmosphere at Route 66 Smiles! I had several dental issues when I first came to VIP. Dr. Kariya was able to address each issue and I even had two crowns put on in just a few hours because they create the crowns on site! Doctor and dental staff were gentle, kind and explained everything in detail. I am so pleased with my experience and always look forward to my next appointment.”
