Rachelle said her deep cleaning was actually pleasant.

I truly enjoyed my visit at this location. The staff were very friendly and the wait time wasn’t long at all. I got a deep cleaning and it was very pleasant. I’ve had deep cleanings done before and it was brutal.. I love the fact that I got free whitening gel and trays… that’s a plus. I will be returning back soon to get more work done.
