Review by Lily Flowers
Janet S. Stopka, DDS, PC - reviews
I’m so glad I found such a great dentist and office! I recommend them to everyone. I love that Dr. Stopka cares more about natural non-toxic methods and that she is so thorough and professional. My husband switched to Dr. Stopka as well and has been much happier with his overall dental care. We also love how friendly the front desk ladies are! Nancy & Nancy K are the best.
