I showed up late and on the wrong day, but they happily got me in with 0 min wait time. Greatfacility and staff. Front desk was very helpful and displayed confidence, dental assistant was very friendly, genuine and observant, dentist was polite and very informative. The hygienist (Ariel) seems to truly know her craft and take it seriously. I got the vibe that she is passionate about it, which is not easy to find (in my experience). I feel like she took really good care of my gums, and did her best to make my experience comfortable (while still thoroughly cleaning).

Dr. Whittemore is professional and personable, and he pays close attention to my dental needs. His hygienist does thorough and excellent work and makes sure I'm comfortable and understand what she's needing to do. I appreciate the choicesof appointment reminders, a big help for those twice a year cleaning appointments.

I had a not so great experience at my last dentist, when I came in yesterday with concerns about my previous fillings being sort of incomplete, Dr. Whittemore saw the issues right away without me noting any details. He isvery personable and experienced! He has great bedside manners and was very patient. I’m thankful he was the one doing my cleaning for my first ever appointment here, it allowed me to get to know him before he fixes my fillings next week. I highly recommend him!

I really appreciate that Dr. Whittemore is very communicative, and his staff is very polite, his office is very clean and appears to have advanced technological devices. They also seem fair, they don't try to push to perform work that canotherwise be kept an eye on and dealt with at a later time.

I went in to have some cavities filled. I've had very bad experiences in the past with doctors not giving me the Novacain correctly, meaning I was in extreme pain during the procedure. I expressed this concern to Dr. Whittemore whotook it very seriously. He checked in with me several times during the procedure, and even took the time to explain to me why I most likely had a poor experience in the past. At one point I did feel the drill, and he promptly stopped, applied more Novacain, and proceeded with no more pain. It was honestly as good of an experience as one could expect from having a cavity filled.

I hadn't seen a dentist in over five years, so I was really nervous about having a routine checkup. Dr. Whittemore and his staff were really awesome. The entire experience was pleasant. The waiting room was nice, the front desk washelpful and informative. The hygienist who cleaned my teeth and took x rays was friendly and answered all my questions in a really straightforward, thoughtful way. When Dr. Whittemore went over my x rays and chatted with me about my teeth he was brief, but answered all my questions. I'll definitely be using their practice as my go to from now on.

It was a great experience. Brittany at the front desk is really nice and so was everyone else. I was not made to feel guilty about my condition and I got to see my X rays, something I never got toexperience in the past. Dr. Wittemore was very nice. I am going to make this my dentist of choice.

I had a broken crown replaced, and it could not have gone better. I was seen immediately, the process was painless, I got to watch Netflix while they worked away, and my new crown looks and feels great. Everyone is very nice there.

I had an excellent cleaning. I don't necessarily look forward to getting my filling done next week (because who likes fillings??) but I am much more relieved knowing it will be done by Dr. Whittemore and his staff. I have alreadyrecommended this office to my girlfriend, and I will continue to recommend their practice to other friends as well. 5/5. Excellent customer service too.
