What Our Patients Say
I love this office! EVERYONE is friendly and approachable. I’m not someone who enjoys the dentist, at all. Each and every technician as well as Dr. Miner, all take the time to reassure me and make me feel comfortable. They also won’t recommend unnecessary procedures. They recommend only the things you need, so I trust them with my health! -Amy T.
The people here were kind and very helpful when it came to an emergency tooth pain. They listened to me, fit me in for an appointment, and had me scheduled for a tooth extraction within a week. They gave me all the meds necessary to keep me out of pain, and to keep it from getting worse. I’m very grateful for their services! They were wonderful! And again, thank you! -Briana H.
My first visit was professional, positive, and so thoroughly productive! I was completely impressed from the x-rays to the dentist’s evaluation and recommendations. -Robin K.
The team at West Lakes Dentistry is awesome! From my initial phone call to schedule my first appointment to the appointment itself everything was so personable. My dental hygenist was friendly and nice. Best of all, she was gentle on my teeth and gums during the check-up, always making sure I was comfortable. The whole experience was great and I’m looking forward to going back!! -Jenny R.
