I had my first visit today after reviewing on line over the weekend. The appointment was scheduled quickly, the check in was done efficiently on tablet device, there was no wait, the staff was terrific, the diagnostic (X-ray) equipment was stateof the art, and Doc (Mike) was terrific - both with his thorough explanation of everything and with first class (and pain free) care. HIGHLY recommend this office and Doctor. Best dental visit, EVER! .

This was my first visit to see Dr. Michael Gertsen. He and his staff are very kind and professional. I hadn't been to a dentist in quite some time, and I was apprehensive. Dr. Gertsen was very understanding and accommodating tome, especially because I'm disabled and use a wheelchair. He went beyond what is normal to help me and to make me feel comfortable. I am very glad that I found Dr. Gertsen. I plan on coming back regularly.

I couldn’t possibly say nicer things about Dr. Gertsen and his staff. I have a pretty major dental phobia, and he showed me such kindness and dignity throughout my time with him. He was willing to work with me on gettingmy anxiety levels down, and he made sure to check to see if I was still okay frequently. He was thorough and skilled, and even brought a sense of humor to the situation, which helped me feel at ease. I’d recommend anyone to visit his office in a heartbeat.

This was a follow up visit as the Hygienist noted that I was having an issue with a tooth that had previously had surgery. Michael's staff took x-rays which were immediately available on screen at the dentist's chair. Michael reviewed themand took time to discuss my options. It was a totally painless visit despite Michael having to probe around my teeth and gums. He described what my options were and answered my many questions in a way that I could understand, not a load of dentist's babel.

OMG!!!! I have been looking for a good dentist for such a long time. Well, this week, I found them. I suffer from GAD and panic attacks. Of course, I had one the other day at the office when I wasgetting a procedure done. Dr. Michael G. was so understanding and kind to me. I was so impressed with his compassion and patience. Everyone in the office was also accommodating and I felt comfortable today when I had another appointment. No panic and no anxiety at all. I highly recommend this office to anyone who is seeking professionalism with a friendly, wholesome atmosphere. Family working together for a common purpose: GREAT DENTAL CARE.
