Patient Reviews

Very well conceived COVID-19 plan. Staff executed perfectly. I felt very safe.

As always, this office is great, but with the COVID-19 issue looming, they really shined. Procedures in place to prescreen patients in advance, elimination of queuing/waiting room dwelling, temp checks, and great social distancing throughout. Modified procedures and great infection control/disinfection. I feel like they really thought this through and executed well. Great work. - Mark C.

Great communication

The office did a great job of communicating what to expect coming into office with COVID measures. Dr. Vaughn was informative during the procedure letting me know what and when he was doing things. Everyone was polite and nice. - Rebecca P.

I would recommend this dental practice without any hesitation

I have had some bad experiences with my past dental procedures (I am 65 years old) which have drastically influenced my anxiety about going to the dentist. I can safely say, without any hesitation, that after having had three visits with Dr. Vanhorn, my anxieties have been drastically reduced! Dr. Vanhorn is by far one of the most compassionate, empathetic, caring professionals I have had the privilege to meeting. I would recommend this dental practice without any hesitation, give it one shot and you will not regret it! - Brian M.
