Excellent service from the moment I called the office. Nia went the extra mile to make me feel comfortable. She was very personal and addressed all my questions. Facility and Environment was clean and peaceful. I also noticed the staff was very kind and caring...George, Mack, Janell and both Shauna's treated me as if I were some Celebrity Star. Making sure my personal comfort was a top priority. I am a Senior and was in the dentistry field for many years: " I have never experienced or seen a class act like INLAND INSTITUTE. It was obvious to me this office would not be possible without the most incredible, professionally gifted Doctor: David H.

Patient Testimonial

Thank you for such a pleasant and reassuring experience. My daughter was very nervous about her procedure, but your staff and assistant Darlene really put her worries at ease. We were greated and treated with friendly and courteous smiles the entire time. They explained from start to finish what the procedure was and that really made her feel better. Her surgery and recovery time was very fast, minimal swelling, minimal pain and she was back to herself in no time. She was very happy with her experience and we would highly recommend Dr.Gilbert and his staff to anyone.
