“I am a new patient at Bush Family Dentistry. Great group of people that are very welcoming. You can really tell how much everyone in the office cares about their patients. Dr. Fogaca was extremely helpful and made going to the dentist an enjoyable experience instead of the usual dreaded experience of going to the dentist. This is a group I feel like I can trust with my dental hygiene for the long run. Thanks for making me feel like part of the family!”
