Testimonials

I appreciate the wide variety of services that are in one location. I would recommend this clinic to others because it is convenient and the staff is compassionate. I enjoy my visits because of quality care.

Sarah

Other providers choose not to accept patients with primarily soonercare, and its almost unwelcoming.  At the Little Axe Clinic, I don't experience that.  The services are excellent and patients are treated with the highest regard.

Melissa

"[I] used the small clinic south of Hwy 9 in Little Axe. I am very impressed witht he growth and the continued excellent care I have received over the years. The doctors, nurses, lab, wellness and pharmacy have been better than most in the private sector."

How can you tell if you're hitting the mark when it comes to good oral care? Generally, your 
teeth and gums should not bleed, be painful, or feel rough or sharp to your tongue.  Your breath 
should be fresh for at least a couple of hours after brushing in the morning and after having 
eaten breakfast. One of the easiest ways to prevent gum disease is to clean your teeth properly, 
so try these tricks for a healthier mouth.
