  • "My 8 year suffers from extreme anxiety and we came here from recommendation from my older children’s move I have ever done! It was a calm environment, the Doctor and staff were all very friendly and took the time to get to know my daughter before even looking in her mouth. Two weeks ago she wouldn’t let prior dentist even brush her teeth but Dr. Cajulis and dental assistant were able to complete full check up. Thank Dr. Cajulis for listening and having staff that truly know how to care for a childs needs and fears ."
  • "Dr. Cajulis is THE best, hands down!!! She is AMAZING!!! My daughter had her first visit with her yesterday and Dr. Cajulis was SO great with her. She was very patient and gentle. My daughter was very anxious but quickly warmed up and was talking and laughing during the treatment. We will definitely keep Dr. Cajulis as our dentist!! I sat and watched the entire procedure and was thinking I wish she could be my dentist! Thank you Dr. Cajulis for being AWESOME!! You're the BEST!!"

  • "Dr Cajulis and her staff are superb! The office is kid friendly, well organized and efficient. Our daughter had extractions done and they worked with us to make sure that the work could be done before our insurance expired. There were clear explanations of the costs/benefits/options and I felt comfortable throughout the entire experience. I highly recommend her."
