“Dr. Lawhorn is a VERY good dentist!!! He took very good care of my mouth. He was very polite and professional. I developed an infection after he removed my wisdom teeth which is common, but he was very determined to get it cleared at no cost to me. Everyone who works for him are polite also. It’s obviously Dr. Lawhorn and his staff care alot for their patients. The work he has done on my mouth has been very good with very little pain. It has been the nicest doctor experience I’ve had which is why I have and will refer him to anyone who needs dental surgery!”
