Dr. Spaniel was great! She was very kind and gentle. The office is absolutely beautiful. And her assistant was just wonderful. They both were personable, very knowledgeable and professional. I had some extensive and painful work done and I’m glad it was with Sprucewood Dental. The work was done correctly and thoroughly.
