There are no words to describe exactly how amazing my experience with Dr.Michaelson and his staff has been. From day one I felt so welcome in his office. My smile was honestly one of my largest insecurities, I never wanted to show my teeth for photos and covered my mouth while laughing. I went to Dr. Michaelson's office in hopes to get veneers and a new smile. Every consultation was easy and relaxed. I felt so safe with his team. - Cassie P.
