Dr.Joseph Sunny is the doctor who is doing the treatment of my tooth for providing the metal braces.I had started this treatment with him during March 2017 and I wish to say that I was very much comfortable under his treatment.He used to inform the date of my treatments well in advance without foregoing a single class of mine at the college.
Joseph did an excellent job on my teeth. He did 3 filling two on front top teeth and one on bottom left. Looking at them you cannot tell that I have had any fillings. Joseph explained the issues in detail and I will be returning for my crowns. He was friendly and very helpful* ****** **** ** **** ******** ** *** *** ** ********* **** ****** *** ** *** *** *****
