What Our Patients Are Saying
Although not my favorite place to go (I do not like the dentist) this place makes it a pleasurable experience! Always making sure I am comfortable, on time, and they brought my teeth back to health! If you need a dentist but are apprehensive, I highly recommend them!
I’ve been going to Smith and Wetterhus for several years and always receive excellent dental care. The dental hygienist are excellent as well
I am one to fear going to the dentist and hesitant due to multiple bad experiences. Unfortunately I needed a root canal and filling due to a cavity. I am all about ratings and reviews which is why I chose Smith and Wetterhus’s dental office. When I walked in I was warmly greeted by Kaila who is the front office manager. I had a pleasure of meeting Angela who is one of the Registered Dental Assistance. She took great care of me and helped put my anxiety to ease. She is truly amazing and I love her personality not to mention she knows her stuff. I enjoyed speaking with Maranda who is the insurance coordinator. Great conversation and the best part is being able to relate when it comes to life experiences. Dr. Wetterhus, what can I say the he is the BEST! He did a phenomenal job on my dental work. Great personality and highly qualified to get the job done. Please trust me when I say go see them for your dental needs. You will not regret it. Great team and I love the location. Thanks guys!
Let’s face it, going to the dentist is never fun, but the staff at Smith & Wetterhus do an excellent job and make my visits as pleasant as possible. I highly recommend my Dentist and my Dental Assistant.
I don't have any dental problems and never have, but I get a lot of tartar in between cleanings and I love the way they clean my teeth. I specifically moved to their dental office for that reason. The people I have come in contact with at the office are really great. I'll take this opportunity to say thank you for taking such good care of me.
