Dr. Winkelman and his staff are amazing! In just one month I have had six extractions and a root canal without any discomfort during or after procedure. I have much more work needed but the comforting staff and gentle care of Dr Winkelman keep me coming back until my smile is complete. I would refer anyone needing dental work to Meridian Dental Care because I know they do what's best for your needs.
GREAT DENTIST, WONDERFUL OFFICE STAFF!
