"My experience with Dr. Bembey has been great… She explains everything that needs to done and makes sure you understand ... She cares about your overall well-being…. Her assistants also made sure I was comfortable and if I needed anything…. I am very happy with the dental work that has been done…. I have already passed on her information to a friend for her future dental work…" - Catherine L.
