Dr. Largent does an excellent job with my son who has Autism and diabetes. She is patient and kind. Also, her staff. She treats him with compassion. She compliments me as a parent. That means alot. He will be 18 soon and I am proud to say has always been cavity free. He is very comfortable with Dr. Largent. Thank you for the wonderful work you do in dental care. Others years ago was afraid to clean my sons teeth because he had Autism. She treats the patient like a real person, not like a disability that cannot be treated. God Bless her and her staff. - Marilyn York
