    “I made an appointment to get my veneers done , as I was not happy how my front teeth looked when I smile . I hadn’t gotten my dental work done for quite some time due to my fear of dental needles, but the staff and dr makbul patel made my experience a great one . Overall I had a great experience here and thought I would share for those looking to get dental work done ."
