By Jodie H., Folsom

I hadn't been into Dr. Borrowdale's office for about 3 1/2 lack of organization! The team at the office all welcomed me back and put my fears to rest...they were gentle (especially since I hadn't had a cleaning in all that time). I made sure to make my next appointment when I left....this time in about 6 more missing appointments! Special kudos to Nina and Ann, both were amazing!
