“Dr. Gray and Dr. Hurtado are the best Dentists that I’ve experienced in my 65 years. The dental hygienist and assistants are the most polite, accommodating and professional people that I know. I think so highly of this dentists office that if I were to move to another state, I would still keep this dentist and would return twice a year for my checkups. Seriously!”


“You work with people you know, like, and trust. And if you visit Dr. Gray, you’ll leave knowing you like him, you love his staff, and you trust every single soul in that building! An amazingly skilled professional office with even better (if possible) customer service!”


Dr. Greg Hurtado and his team are truly amazing—professional, attentive, and always willing to answer all of our questions. Haley, their happiness ambassador, went above and beyond to help us prepare for my son's procedure, providing reassurance and support. Impressively, Dr. Hurtado called us well after hours to check on my son and ensure he was doing well. Espire Dental exceeded our expectations with their combination of friendly staff, skilled professionals, and state-of-the-art facilities. I highly recommend this dental office to anyone!


“after consultation with two other dental offices that were not great, I landed in Dr. Gray's office and I am so grateful I did . Dr. Gray and his team members have changed my life! I highly recommend them.”
