  • Dr. Elzawahry is amazing! Very gentle and quick with procedures! The cost for my root canal was 1/4 of what other local dentists quoted me. Do yourself a favor and visit Dr. Elzawahry!

  • I went to Dr. Elzawhary for many years. He wasn't able to take my insurance anymore so I just moved over to his wife in the next office. They were both very kind as was their staff. I had to move to Texas to be closer to my daughter so she could help me. I sure wish I could find a Dentist here with their expertise.
