I have been going to this office for years, I never have to wait for my appointment and have always been seen quickly in an emergency. Sandra is a great hygienist. The office is clean, stylish and comfortable and they play great music. Its also fun to have a dentist named Drilling.
The staff is friendly, welcoming and great with children! My 3 year old walked right in and, to my surprise, was the best patient! He let them take photos, floss and brush his teeth, and Dr. Drillings even got to poke around!
Highest recommendation for Dr. Drilling and her staff.They are truly second to none. I have gone to Dr. Drilling for many years and have been treated with utmost respect. I trust her fully and completely with ALL of my dental needs. Not only is Dr. Drilling knowledgeable, she is very personable and real. Janet at the front desk is always friendly and welcoming and goes above and beyond to accommodate patients busy schedules. Dr. Drilling's girls in the back are personable, always very professional and just a pleasure to see. I have enjoyed the entire staff over the years and in the strongest manner possible I would recommend Dr. Drilling and her wonderful staff for any and all of your dental needs.
Dr. Drilling and her staff are super! They are very thorough in their explanations of procedures, and super efficient in their methods. My appointments over more than a decade of service have always been on time; I've never had to wait. Although, if I had to wait, which I never have, the front office is really pretty. It's always a pleasure... they're GREAT!
I get a little anxious when I have to go to the dentist. As soon as I walk into Dr. Drilling's office, I am received with such warmth and friendliness. I feel like I'm at home. The entire staff seems to go out of their way to make you feel relaxed. I can't say that I enjoy going to the DENTIST, but they take the edge off and make it pleasant.
My family and I have been patients of the original Dr. Drilling (her dad)
our deepest sympathy he will be missed. A wonderful man who was family to everyone,daughter Patty is just like him. Her and her staff are so Professional,friendly,happy people. Were Lucky to have her in Tulare!!
I've been going to Dr Drilling's office for the last 7 years. The staff (especially their receptionist, Janet) is wonderful. They're professional and very friendly. Their equipment is really cool too! It seems like they've always got an updated tool/technology that makes treating their patients easier/better.
I enjoy going to get my dental work done there. I've been to other dental offices. From the moment you walk in, you are greeted by the friendly staff. Then you are invited to the examination room. Everything that needs to be done for your dental health is taken care of in that room. Their strengths are friendliness, care in doing what needs to be done with the least amount of discomfort, and concern for the complete person.
