You and Your Teeth

I've been going to Dr. Henson for over 30 years. Even though I now live 3 hours from Knoxville, I've continued with him as my dentist, scheduling appointments for when I'm home visiting family, because he and his whole staff are simply the best. Highly recommend him!

I am generally scared of the dentist, but I have never felt that in Dr. Henson's office. The office is nice, and staff friendly. Would recommend to anyone.
