They always take care of me whenever I go inKarla TracyKarla Tracy ★★★★★ A Shout-Out to Smile Vegas Dental - The Best Dental Office in Town
I recently visited Smile Vegas Dental and it was by far the best dental experience I've ever had. The entire staff, from front to back, was incredibly friendly and caring. However, I want to give a special shout-out to Dr. Kung and Jacob for being exceptional. They were attentive, informative, and extremely helpful. When I arrived, I was in excruciating pain, but they were able to diagnose and fix the problem on the same day, unlike other dental offices that tend to refer you to a specialist right away. Dr. Naweed understood the severity of my pain and went out of his way to help me. Additionally, I don't have insurance, but the office offers various forms of assistance. I highly recommend Smile Vegas Dental to anyone seeking high-quality dental care. Thank you so much for your exceptional service!Amber PettyAmber Petty ★★★★★ Tyrone Alvin McFarlaneTyrone Alvin McFarlane ★★★★★ It was nice.A. J. GillisA. J.
