I always have a good experience at this office. Everyone is always upbeat, friendly, and knowledgeable! I was very nervous at first because I have always been a little afraid of the dentist but the doctors and staff made sure I was comfortable and you DON’T EVEN FEEL THE SHOTS...not even a little bit. The doctors care about their patients and do only high quality work nothing less. I highly recommend today’s dental. I Should have came here sooner!!

Dr cossich worked on my teeth as a teenager. No one has ever been so gentle nor done such great work since I had moved away since katrina. Every other dentist has complimented his work, and no one has ever sent me home pain free. Root canals, fill ins , if I could travel back to Louisiana just to have him work on my teeth I certainly would. If you sat in the waiting room for 6 hours it would be worth waiting on this man.
