Dr. Speck is very personable. He takes the time to listen and offer solutions. During the work he did on myteeth he explained everything he was doing and how it might feel so there were no surprises. Dr. Speck is courteous and professional.

Dr. Speck is a kind, thoughtful dentist. I dislike dentists, but he makes the treatment all right. I've been going to him for several years now and I make the 30 minute trip to see him because he's good.

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 everything right - 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. Everything was 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 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 he has 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 and his 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.
