“I had the best experience at Burns dentistry. From the moment I walked in the receptionist greeted me by my name to when they called me back for my appointment. This was the first dental office that ever gave me a tour of there office which I thought was pretty neat. Office is really nice and clean. Dr. Holtan was very nice and friendly and loved how he took his time on explaining everything to me. So extremely grateful and highly recommend Burns Dentistry.”
