As a child, I grew up through what today could today be considered the “dark ages” of dental care. There is a good reason that people dreaded going to the dentist. Having been a patient of Dr. Darel Moss for more than a quarter century, all those memories of getting dragged to the dentist are happily erased. During my many visits to Dr. Moss, I have never felt even a small bit of discomfort. Not only is he highly skilled in providing quality dental care, but he and his staff are equally focused in offering clear instruction in preventative home care. Of critical note is the fact he will carefully explain his treatment plan and never perform unnecessary dentistry. Dr. Moss also has great skill in carrying on interesting, sometimes humorous, conversation without the expectation that you will be able to necessarily respond, since he is busily working his craft. Everyone leaves feeling as though they have visited with a friend. I think that is an important part of why I have happily recommended him to many of my friends, who have become his longtime patients as well.
