“Dr. DiSano spent time explaining thoroughly and made sure all my questions were answered (Invisalign consult). It was a snow day and school was cancelled so my kids had to accompany me; the staff was accommodating and patient with them (much more so than I was!). We have had many visits to South County Smiles and can honestly say the entire staff is very caring, professional, and wants to make sure the patient has a good experience.”-Joni B.
