“Lighthouse dental is our clinic for over 15 years.  We love the stuff, they are part of our family!  Today we needed extra time for our 12 year old daughter, they gave us all the time we needed, the doctor was very professional and kind with kids, lots of love in care for our children!  Love them always and recommend to anyone! ”
