Dr. John is the greatest!! My kids love him and his staff. The last time I took my daughter for an appointment, my son started crying because he wanted to go too!! Imagine that!!

Dr. John is fabulous. I have been taking my two kids to him for several years. Last weekend my daughter was accidently hit in the mouth with a baseball bat and broke one of her front teeth off. I called Dr. Christensen on his cell phone and he met us at his office. He took so much time and care explaining what needed to be done and then fixed her tooth so it looked like nothing ever happened. I was shocked and so pleased with his expertise and the care he showed us during this very stressful situation!! Five Stars!!
