I was very much satisfied with my recent visit to Smile Artistry. I felt very welcomed from the very beginning of my visit, from the helpful Receptionist, Diane, to the Assistant, Samantha, and of course Dr. Cherukuri. They were very accommodating to my work schedule with appointment times. I highly recommend this office to anyone in future need of dental care, you will be taken care of with gentle loving hands.R Valdez
