"Dr. McClanahan has done significant work on my mouth. I have always had extreme dental anxiety. Dr. McClanahan and his staff have made me feel so comfortable and check-in on all of my concerns. My smile hasn't looked so good in years. My mouth hasn't felt this good in years. Thank you to Dr. McClanahan and all his staff. You are worth every penny! I'm glad I have a place I know does honest work and is trustworthy."
