There is absolutely not enough words to describe how awesome Dr. Cauley and his staff are. They made me feel like family, and if I was the only patient they had The days off my visits. This may sound crazy but I can’t wait to go back! I HIGHLY recommend Dr. Cauley.

Had my teeth cleaned today. Great experience. Brittani was great and gentle. Dr. Chappell was great at explaining the work needed to be done. Would recommend them to all. Staff was nice and helpful. The timing was great with no wait. Thank you for your service.

All three of our boys (ages 13, almost 9, and barely 7) LOVE going here. The little ones love the hygienists and the attention they get. They seriously think they’re getting a spa day when we go. They get to pick a show to watch or songs to listen to (and sing along with), a fun pair of glasses to wear, and even a fun hat if they want. In 13 years, we’ve never been to a dentist office that was so much fun! They truly give everyone their undivided attention and the service is phenomenal. If you’re tired of feeling like you’re just another
