In return, the profession makes a commitment to society that its members will adhere to high ethical standards of conduct.

SHEILA  H. 2/26/14 – The sign out front “We Cater to Cowards” brought me in when I first moved to Brooksville. I found it to be very true. The staff is so warm and friendly – you feel like you are going home to visit family. And very efficient and knowledgeable. They make sure you understand each step of the procedure – before and after – and will even hold your hand during the procedure if necessary. Dr. Michaels is just the best and I highly recommend her to anyone!

LARRY F. 2/15/14 – I am very lucky to have stumbled into your office in need of a glue-up on my bridge. You have impressed me with your skillful knowledge of dentistry, but more so with your compassion, your laughter, your gentle nature, and your overall personality. Although I am privy to only a microcosm of your life, what I have learned about you makes you stand out among a handful of people I have been fortunate enough to have met on my 64 year journey. I have never experienced a medical or dental office that has constant laughter going on, as most of them are way too serious in their bedside manner. You are a remarkable individual in so many respects that makes you stand head and shoulders above any of your peers, and they would be better off taking some of your mannerisms to heart. I am very happy with the results of your professional abilities, and given the opportunity, speak of you in high regard….

KRISTYN B. 3/13/14 – I have always been so scared to go to the dentist. I have very high anxiety and would usually have a panic attack just getting my teeth cleaned. But, Dr. Michaels and her staff make me feel as if I am going to be with family; a family that puts hands in your mouth 🙂 They are excellent. And I even floss now.
