"My husband has been going to DentalWorks for over a year. He had a lot of dental problems from not being able to take care of his dental hygiene due to his Parkinson’ disease and not so good with his hands in flossing and brushing his teeth. He had crowns replaced, cavities filled by Dr. Smith. Catherine is such a nice hygienist, very patient and skillful to clean his teeth. We are very happy with DentalWorks and highly recommend their practice!"- T.B. / Google / Sep 07, 2018

"Have been to them 3 times and have been extremely pleased with each visit. Highly reccomend them."- K.L. / Google / Aug 08, 2018
"New to the area and I couldn't recommend giving this dentistry a try! Was a pleasure to deal with all of the staff from the front desk to the office mgr, to the hygienist, to the Dentist herself. They listened to me and understood how sensitive (teeth/etc) I was and filled with anxiety and they took SO much better care of me than my previous office (different state) had for the past 10 years. I'm actually looking forward to my next appt in 6 months which has never happened before."- J.L. / Google / Aug 03, 2018
