My husband and I were visiting Mayo Clinic from Oklahoma. He had an emergency dental problem. We called Northwest Dental and they were able see him the next day. The entire staff and doctor were very friendly, caring and helpful. The doctor was able to stabilize the problem so he could make it until we returned home. We greatly appreciate their kind and professional help. Definitely a 5 plus star rating.
