Our Patients Say

Absolutely amazing and friendly staff. Very thorough about what they need to do. Explains everything in detail. Love everyone at this office.. both the kids and I go here. Hands down best of the best..

Steph A

The staff and medical professionals handled my granddaughters examination with great care. She is going to get braces and they answered all our questions and I know they will continue their great treatment of my granddaughter during her treatment.

Dale B

Gentle during cleanings, high tech equipment and imaging the patient can actually see, clean office and kind staff. I would also recommend their pediatric dept. My 4yo went in for a filling and from the time he sat in the dental chair to the time we left the building only 15 mins had passed. Dr. Stephanie was very fast and efficient and having the nitrous helped my little one to stay calm. He said the procedure didn't hurt at all!

Rachel R

Worth the 45 minute drive for us. Will be returning. Their special care for my son who has autism and extreme anxiety is beyond amazing! Would highly recommend to all parents!

Jamie R

Amazing staff and results. They have handled my needs over the last two years, due to a dental emergency, with care and professionalism. My son and I have also been going there for our regular dentistry now as well. They are flexible with appointments and this is the only office I've ever been to that will call me and try to help me with better and more logical appointments when they can get more done at one time. Saves a lot of time and money on all parties and I love that!

Angela M

From my first phone contact with this dental clinic, I was impressed with the level of service and attention to detail. Special mention goes to Dawn. She was courteous and answered all my questions in a professional manner. I felt completely at ease taking my adult autistic daughter to this office for her evaluation. Dr. Ivashchuk and Stephanie were very accommodating and professional in dealing with a very anxious individual. I highly recommend.
