Verified Patient Reviews
VERY GOOD EXPERIENCE. HIGHLY RECOMMEND John for dental issues
Doc and I had a good conversation about options after a difficult process to determine the real problem. I brought up a second complaint and after a quick diagnosis we decided to fix it "now". The fix went well. I walked out a half-fixed customer.
Wait time was a little longer but am highly satisfied with the service. Well done guys!
Amazing Doctor with complete in details diagnosis and well explained to the patient on what's going on with them.
Thorough explanation of procedures before during and after. Treatment plan and pricing was disclosed and reasonable.
It was my first time to the dentist in a long time, and they made me feel really comfortable. It was a great experience.
Went for filling, but only X-rays were taken.
Both doctor and assistant are very friendly and knowledgeable. Completed the task efficiently.
Entire staff is great!
Great first impression with this doctor. Look forward to the follow-up appointment.
It was good! Dr. Vellequtte is a wonderful dr. The staff is phenomenol.
Nice and clean office. The doctor and office staff were very friendly and helpful! We will be returning to this dentist!
He was very professional, open, and welcoming. He didn't hesitate to just come sit next to me in the waiting room and say hey. He looked over my teeth, told me I seemed like a good candidate for Invisalign, and then we went and did the requisite steps (making molds of my teeth, X-rays, etc.) Some of the mold gel slipped and ended up in my hair (my fault; I gagged on the mold), and he didn't hesitate to work it out with a hot towel for me. The visit was pleasant from start to finish, and his assistants were also very nice.
awsome staff. especially to put up with sore jaw during a crown prep!!
Dr & staff was excellent. Only thing that caused me some heartburn was the fact that from start to finish on xrays took almost 1 hour. I guess she was new and didn't know how to do oral xrays.
Excellent Doc. and hospitality.
Highly recommended, awesome dentist. His work was beyong my expectation. Extra work but less charges.
Friendly staff, Amazin hygienist and an awesome doctor! Highly recommend!
