Dr. Truesdale was on vacation but the dentist filling in for her was excellent along with Dr. Truesdale's assistance. They made me feel very comfortable and provided additional explanation and understanding to the course of treatment I wouldneed. Best experience I have ever had at a dentist appointment. Hope my experience in the future with Dr. Truesdale and associates are the same.

Dr. Truesdale (Dana) sets the tone and it permeates throughout her staff. It's respect, patience, kindness, and accommodating. The confident application of Dental expertise is high class. That echoes to behind the counter with Kena's unflappableprofessionalism and the kind DA's. No hitches or glitches quality all the way around.

The 7/9 visit I required two (2) lower back /wisdom teeth be extracted off both sides of my mouth. I expressed concerns about eating and pain. Those thoughts were quickly alleviated by the professional care provided by Dr. Truesdsle and Nikki.I actually felt no pain and still have no pain or side effects a day later... Furthermore, I have a good appetite and am eating fine, but carefully. I am grateful/blessed to have found a great dentist. Kudos to Dr. Truesdale and all her staff!

My visits with Dr. Truesdale and her staff is always a pleasant atmosphere where the staff is friendly and putting the patients at ease if they are nervous. They carry on a conversation about everyday life and answering your questions aboutwhat is going or telling what they are doing next to your teeth so there are no surprises. I would recommend Dr. Truesdale to anyone looking for a dentist, she is very professional, friendly, down to earth and she always has a ready smile to lighten the mood that comes when going to the dentist.

Every time I visit and leave, I leave SATISFIED and well taken care if.. I Love the personal touch and care of Dr. Truesdale and her staff. The atmosphere and environment is always clean, fresh, soothing, inviting and peaceful. I Lovethe fact that I feel like a patient/person and not a dollar. I barely feel the prick of the anesthesia needle if I feel it at all. The instruments are clean. I Love the fact that not only does Dr. Truesdale care for me during my visit, she talks me through it and educates me concerning my mouth and overall health; suggesting better and preventive care. Dr. Truesdale and her staff genuinely care for their patients. I feel welcomed every time I arrive. It's almost like the first time. Like the desire to leave a lasting impression from the beginning. I get that every time I visit. They are gentle and caring. The music is just right, not too loud, not to soft, just right. I have definitely referred family and friends and will continue to do. Dr. Truesdale is the BEST DENTIST I've had the pleasure of caring for my mouth. That genuine care makes me want to come back again and again and keep my appointments. So if you're reading this feedback, it's genuine and you definitely won't go wrong place the care of your mouth in her hands.

I would like to thank Dana for the dental care that she gave me during my first month at her office. I was deeply concerned about my teeth and experienced an unknown pain that began to worry me. After talking toDana, I felt comfortable about the work that had to be performed due to her professional and sincere attitude. I know my dental health is going to now improve substantially because of her special efforts of putting together a treatment plan that is going to help me to recover faster. I would like to thank her once again and will recommend her to anyone with dental issues.

She was extremely reassuring about the procedures I needed to have done (my very first filling), but I wish she'd spent a little more time explaining what exactly she was going to do. However, not everybody needs that much detail. Justkeep this in mind, though, if you need thorough explanations about any healthcare you receive.

We were looking for a new dentist for my 9-year old son closer to home and were lucky enough to come upon Dr. Truesdale! From her very friendly receptionist to the very personable and professional hygenist, we knew we were inthe right place shortly after we arrived. My son was a new patient so I was thinking it would take forever to register him, but the process only took a couple minutes and we were in! Dr. Truesdale came in and immediately identified the issue at a glance. His other dentist would not touch this issue and my son suffered as a result. She donned her gloves, got her tools, went to work and in minutes my son's suffering was gone and his teeth were healthier. She was so impressive that I've made an appointment for myself. Dr. Truesdale is now our family dentist because she earned it!!!

I hadn't been to a dentist in a while and had been nervous about going for fear of the judgemental looks from past dentists. I came into the office early during the lunch break and was pleasantly greeted. Everyone was justreally nice. Instead of being put down for not taking care of my teeth before, it was about what we will do in the future to make things better. I think kindness goes a long way when it comes to seeing a Dr.
