Amazing doctor, amazing staff.
Patient | August 1, 2017
The reading materials he gave me we VERY POOR copies. The introduction said to read them over a few times, yet the pages were cut off and out of order, and some were missing as content did NOT follow from one page to the next. Some of the information was good, but ultimately useless in that many things were missing.
Patient | July 20, 2017
Dr. McKenna provided excellent care during my recent oral surgery.
Patient | June 26, 2017
He was right to the point about what would happening before, during, and after surgery! Spot on!
Patient | June 8, 2017
Dr. McKenna is very good with my daughter - answers her questions never minimizes her concerns.

Dr. McKenna helped me with the decision on how to handle my dental problem and also got me a dentist there to complete the procedure
Patient | February 6, 2017
Dr Mckenna was friendly, gave a through explanation of my issues, provided alternatives for treatment with the pros and cons of each, and constantly asked during the procedure if I was doing okay or if I needed to take a break. Very caring.

Dr. McKenna has been following my son's case for a year or more. We feel very comfortable with him. Only complaint is there is not much follow up with the orthodontist - I have to bring all the info. between the two of them.
Patient | January 3, 2017
Our experience was excellent.
Patient | December 10, 2016
Dr. McKenna was worth the wait! He was the only reason we followed thru with wisdom teeth extraction! He is amazing & kind hearted.
