Janine P.

"Dr. Doering is the most caring dentist I have ever met. The staff are all amazing to work with. The 2 women at the front desk are a joy to associate with - very friendly! I definitely without a doubt highly recommend them, hands down."

Norman H.

“After two very successful procedures with Drs. Budde and Doering, I am extremely satisfied with the professional and respectful service I received. It's all about fixing my teeth. Thanks.”

John s.

“Had a good experience. They listened to my concerns and gave me the treatment that I needed to keep my mouth healthy. I will be back again for regular cleanings and maybe avoid some of the repairs I just had to have in the future.”

You don’t need to wait in pain.
