I could not have been happier with my treatment by Dr. Offutt and his staff today. I felt the doctor, as well as the hygienist, did an excellent job explaining what they were doing at all times. I will definitely continue my follow-ups with Dr. Offutt.

Patient Review by Cameron K

I am very happy with making the decision to see Dr. Cockerham. He explained everything very well and was more than helpful with getting me scheduled last minute. The staff was super friendly and was always trying to find a way to make my visit more pleasurable, even when it was for gum graft surgery!
