I was always somewhat afraid of dentists and orthodontist and the pain involved. Plus I didn't like going to any healthcare professional to begin with. Dr. Larabee and his staff make you feel like family. The most impressive thing is how friendly and welcoming his front office staff is each time I go in for a visit. This means much more than just being the professional that he and his staff are, this makes you feel like that really care. S.R.
