This office far exceeds the rest. From their cute curb appeal to all the latest greatest equipment to the fabulous Dr. And staff. I believe you will be hard pressed to find a comparable practice. Thanks guys for the great care we have received throughout the years!

As a "senior" senior citizen, I have been more than fortunate to select "LIFETIME SMILES" for both general and specialized dentistry. The principals and crew of the firm act as a team of interested, dedicated people who offer professional excellence to each and every patient. The entire therapy and experience is performed in a warm, friendly customer service atmosphere...resulting in relaxed and positive service. Patient comfort and convenience is an obvious goal, offered in a timely "as scheduled" manner. Overall, just hard to beat.

My last visit was great. I arrived early and you had a cancellation. I got in early and was done in no time.

Great job by all!

Dr. McDonald and Staff are wonderful. Ray and I both had appointments for dental work and as always it was very pleasant and our feelings are always taken into consideration as far as how are we doing, etc. We have and always will recommend this office to all who need an excellent dentist.

I was greeted by Tammy and was immediately whisked by Laurie to her work station. And then, the computer screen momentarily lost power, the splash glasses slipped from my eyes, the lights dimmed and all the advanced technology shivered because Dr. McDonald was gone! Yes, gone, absent, no were to be found, invisible! Not present. She was elsewhere!

I feared there would be no lemons from her trees and worse, that my smile would dim without her sweeping into the room, taking charge and pronouncing my visit a success. Oh, she was missed and badly so!

Still Laurie, as always, was tops, Dr. Jeff was super, but even he seemed subdued knowing Dr. McDonald was missing! Jammie and Tammy are terrific and at least there were fresh lemons. I left feeling good, but a little subdued. The technology and Pat missed Dr. McDonald! I hope they find her soon!

Unfortunately, I have a sensitive gag reflex, so most dental treatments can be uncomfortable. My hygentist, Lori always offers me a 3 min. rince which numbs my soft tissue in order for her to do a complete cleaning. She does everything to make me feel comfortable, suctioning any fluids, keeping my chair more upright and keeping me distracted with nice conversation. Even with my condition, I always look forward to my next visit. The office staff knows me by name and always make me feel special!
