At first I was nervous about going to the dentist, but Dr. Alford and his staff made sure I enjoyed my visit. He was very clear and informational about the procedure and steps he was taking during the procedure, he did everything possible to make sure I had no pain during and after the procedure. I would recommend Dr. Alford to all my friends and family. Very experienced and professional!

I seriously wonder why Dr. Alford has swept over my Reported. Is it his guilt that plagues him. He has never been in touch with me to this day and has never apologized to me for the impudence to have just filed my sore healthy beautiful front teeth, although I am come for tooth pain in the left jaw half.

My experience with Dr. Alford hear more like a horror story. I had emergency Moderately to a dentist and they gave me his address. I told him that I have a toothache in the upper left jaw half. What came next was the height. The dental assistant told me that one should not make a bit of cosmetics. When I went back home, the doctor had me cut my beautiful beloved four front teeth, although I went to him because of toothache.
I let the receptionist say that I was shocked. The doctor thought it was still not necessary for you to contact me.
When I got home, I went from dentist to dentist and everyone assured me that you can not undo this disaster.
Since that day I am unhappy because of this mishap of Dentists.
Never in my life I would go to his practice.
