quote icon Dr. Batlle is the most professional, thorough dentist with a staff who is equally qualified. And the are so nice! At a dental practice, I am looking for expertise and I have found it at Dr. Batlle's office. Even the dental cleanings use the latest technology that is shared with me so I can see what she finds. To say a dental experience is pleasant says it all for me.

quote I have been to many dentists in many places throughout the country. I have never been treated better with this family dentistry. John Batlle has a magic touch. You can tell when he numbs you up because there’s a way he moves his hand where you feel nothing! I’ve always been made to feel loose and relaxed and to me that’s important...
