I've always had a very pleasant visit at Hitzel Dental of Clearwater. Chris, the dental hygienist, is extremely pleasant and quite knowledgeable. She offers great advice and tips on taking care of your teeth in between visits. She's also gentle when cleaning my teeth -- I never feel like I've had ice picks dug into my gums and never had to take pain relievers afterward, which is rare. My teeth and gums actually feel invigorated! Dr. De La Torre is wonderful as well; she's friendly, thorough, and knowledgeable as well.
In addition, the front desk staff is friendly. Someone always greets you with a hello and a smile when you walk in the door.
