When I was in 4th grade my dental process began. Every step of the way Horton Family Dental was there for me. Dr. Horton actually called me while he was off work just to see how I was doing after my surgery. Everyone at the office is helpful and has a great heart. If anyone was looking for a dentist, I would definitely recommend Dr. Horton.
