"Really can't say enough good about Dr Haggerty and his staff. Always very professional. Always on time. Dr Haggerty and his team took care of my implant. I'm not a person that likes to go anywhere near a dentist, but this group may me feel very comfortable and I would absolutely go back to them. Highly recommend trying this office for extraction and/or implant needs."
