Corpus Christi Dentist Reviews
Dr Chang and the staff were extremely professional and courteous. My dental hygienist Elizabeth was awesome! Most dental offices rush through the exam, but Dr Chang and Elizabeth did a comprehensive exam, cleaning, and education. I felt comfortable from start to finish. I would highly recommend you give this dental office a try.
I would highly recommend Dr. Chang and his staff because they are very professional and educational. I have been going to Dr. Chang for over a year now and he has helped me keep my dental hygiene in perfect condition.
Friendly and professional staff. Dr. Chang explains the x-rays to you and helps you to understand what steps can be taken. He also goes out of his way to make you feel comfortable during procedures. I highly recommend him. Thanks Dr. Chang's office!
