P. A. H. Raton, New Mexico

Modern and friendly dental practice, very professional. Spotlessly clean reception area and patient rooms. My surgery involved repair of a filling another dentist had done, Dr. Steve Dixon did a great job. Heather (my hygienist and Dr Dixon's surgical assistant) was highly professional and had an excellent understanding of the surgical procedure. Superior in every way compared to a much more expensive dentist I had been seeing
