  • First visit for my son who is 2. I was referred by a friend. The girls in the front were friendly they have iPads for the kids to play while waiting and the Dentist was good with baby and surprisingly got a peek at my sons teeth. The "cleaning" was very quick but I know he was wiggling. Over all it was a good first time visit.

  • I've been bringing my son to Dr.cito's office since he was 2. He's 4 now and loves going to the dentist. The front office always greets me with a smile and good morning. And thank goodness they remind me of our appointments. The assistants in the back make him feel special, like his part of the family. They are full of answers for my questions and follow my questions by asking Dr.Cito. I have recommended Dr.Cito to all my family and I would recommend him to anyone with small kids
