“Dentistry NW is hands-down the best dental care I have had in my entire life. Not only are they professional, they are friendly and I feel like family there. Everybody is just fabulous and they take the best care of my family.” Teri K. “Dr. Smith is the best. He's very thorough, answers all my questions until I'm completely confident in my care, and he's very gentle. I trust him completely to take excellent care of me. His staff goes above and beyond to make me feel comfortable and welcomed. The hygienists are gentle as well. The entire experience is exactly what anyone would want in a dentist.” Bethany K. “I just had a worn-out filling removed and replaced, without needing anesthetic! Dr. Smith used a laser to remove the old filling very quickly and painlessly, and put a new filling in just as fast. This blew my mind; it normally takes a long time just to numb my back teeth. I was out the door 45 minutes before I expected to be, and had NO shots, and NO pain. And to think I had postponed this procedure several times because I was dreading it so much!” Laura M. “Dr. Smith is the best. I just got finished with some treatment and I could not be happier. His whole team is awesome! They get me in the chair on time and out when expected. The treatment was clearly explained and performed flawlessly. I happily recommend Dentistry NW to anyone looking for a dentist.” Michael C. “I avoided seeing a dentist for years because I was so afraid. I’m so grateful I found Dentistry NW. The staff is amazing and was so patient with me and all the challenges my anxiety brings. I’ve never felt more comfortable in a dentist’s chair. The dental assistant even held my hand while I got my shots! Love this office so much.” Mallory H. “I recommend them to everyone all of the time. They are so pleasant and attentive to your needs and concerns. They make you feel very comfortable. The environment is very calming as welcoming. Highly recommend you check them out.” Trisha H. “The people at Dentistry NW are trusted professionals. They listen and understand my goals and we work towards my best dental health together.” Cheryl H. “I give Dentistry NW five stars. Professionals and experts at the art and science of dentistry.” Jim G. “The staff was exceptional. They were very patient, made us feel sincerely welcomed and were helpful in answering all our questions. Meeting the dentist was similarly very positive. He listened to my questions, which certainly encouraged me as to his sensitivity and professional demeanor. We are looking forward to having our teeth wonderfully cared for in the years ahead.” Thomas R.
