Dr Peppard has been my dentist for about 10 years. I am 55 and have had a lot of work done. The Dr. is professional, yet compassionate. He ALWAYS treats me with respect and asks me how I am doing at different intervals of the procedure. His staff could not be more skilled or empathetic. I hear him with little children in the next area and he is like a kind daddy to them. I often hear them giggle. He speaks to them with a soft, loving tome to calm them. I would never go to, or trust anyone else.
