Recent reviews
I've told multiple doctors and dentists about my issues with my TMJ (Temporomandibular Joint), telling them about the clicking,the difficulty opening and closing my jaw etc. Dr. Stangeland is the only healthcare professional who has displayed any understanding of the issues around the joint, and he spoke with the expertise of someone who's dealt with this before. He had a hunch and seemed like he knew what was wrong right away. He pinpointed it to my teeth having an irregular bite, and explained that it could be the source of my tinnitus and trigeminal neuralgia. I don't know if he's right yet but he recommended a splint. It's an expensive treatment but it should correct the bite and fix the cascade of other issues that came from it. I was close to tears thinking of the fear, anxiety, and frustration I've dealt with coming from just my TMJ issues. If this addresses just those, my life will be changed. If this treatment helps with the tinnitus and other issues, it'll have been one of the most important medical visits of my life. I couldn't recommend this practice more!

The doctor is friendly, professional and experienced. He explains what work you might want to consider and why, and how urgent it is then leaves the choices up to you. The staff is welcoming and helpful. Great office!

Great service, very professional and knowledgeable. Provided me with great suggestions on how to improve my dental health. I would suggest them for new patients to first check if the patient has already filled the personal information form online to not have to do it again in the office.

I am so happy I found them on this site! The staff is warm and welcoming. They talk you through everything that is going to happen for your visit. They broke down the cost of procedures and showed me exactly whatneeds to be fix and why. They also gave me a referral to a dental surgeon to help with the removal of my upper wisdom teeth. I will refer anyone I know who's looking for a great dentist to go there!
