I would like to thank Dr. Speck and his staff for being very caring with me today during my appointment. I emailed the office prior to my appointment Dr. Speck actually read my message. He was informed about my dental issues.This made my appointment so much smoother. He did not have to guess what was going on with my teeth. My appointment went better than expected. Thanks

One of my friends recommended Dr. Speck a couple years ago when I mentioned I was looking for a dentist. Dr. Speck is probably the nicest, friendliest dentist I've ever had. He takes his time and makes sure he does everythingright - if you have to wait a little longer, just remember it's because he's not rushing through patients. His office is really neat too. The only possible downside I can imagine is that if you don't like listening to Jimmy Buffet, you'll have a bad time. One of his assistants said he doesn't even turn off Margaritaville Radio when he goes home for the night.

Dr. Speck was very informative and also had a good personality - Rather than trying to upsell me on his services he went against a previous dentist recommendation to have a skin graft done on one of my teeth. Will return.

I typically hate going to the dentist--not the case with Dr. Speck. It's as quick as easy as possible--and he didn't make me feel bad about the fact that it had been quite a while since my last check up. Everythingwas timely; I didn't feel like extra charges were pushed on me, and I'm actually looking forward to having my teeth cleaned in 6 months.

I had a crown which had come off and Dr. Speck fixed it right away as well as did a long-needed cleaning. It was great to not worry about that crown coming loose again! As well as know the rest of my teeth are OK!

I came in for a cleaning. First time patient. His office was very quaint and very non-dentist. More like a lawyer's office in a loft which made it seem less scary (although lawyers are scary). He was very gentle and hehas up to date technology to clean your teeth painlessly. I recommend him!

Excellent personal care from everyone in the office. I needed deep cleaning, which I thought would take at least two visits. To my pleasant surprise it only took the one visit and the results greatly exceeded my expectations. Dr. Speck andhis assistant worked as a team and were thorough, patient and caring. The procedure was comfortable, my teeth look and feel great and I do not feel any after treatment pain or discomfort. They kept my mouth well drained throughout the entire procedure and explained what was going on. One other thing, I observed that they also treat each other with old fashion courtesy and respect, that really says a lot to me. Words of advice, go through the entire email; it has parking instruction and the building access code. Also for your first visit arrive a little early as there is construction going on in the area (11/13/15) and you may need the extra time.
