    Admittedly, it has been a few years since I last visited a dentist so take it with a grain of salt. The staff at Country Park dental were friendly and personable while staying efficient and productive. The office was clean and modern, treatment rooms were well kept and equipment was in good repair, clean, and effective. During my visit they also provided information and explanations as required, demystifying some common misconceptions. All in all, a 5 star experience.

    Honestly it was a really great experience for me since I haven't been to the dentist in a year and half. I was pleasantly surprised by how knowledgeable the dental assistant was and she always asked to see if I was comfortable throughout the cleaning. The dentist was very friendly as well and was super helpful in answering my questions and offering recommendations and solutions. Both of them clearly work as a team and I really am glad I booked the appointment here! Sidenote- I was super late by 15 mins which I really felt was inappropriate on my behalf but when I came in they were super professional and got down to getting me into my appointment right away despite my delaying it. The front desk lady was amazing with how she handled my phone calls even though my phone was having troubles on my end. She also was super great on booking me for my next appointments as well!

    Had a fantastic experience at Country Park Dental! I have been intimidated by the dentist and has some painful experiences with flossing in the past, but the team at Country Park were kind, considerate, and so helpful. They taught me how to floss without causing pain, and were extremely informative in helping me improve my dental health. Will definitely be returning!

    I have always hated going to the dentist. I have an unexplainable fear of it, and up until now had never been to a dentist that put me relatively at ease. But Dr Pienarr did! I was amazing. Kristy, the hygienist, was super caring and explained everything she was doing. Then Dr Pienarr came in and also explained everything thoroughly, heard all my concerns, and addressed everything I’d been worried about. This will now be my permanent dentist office.

You could tell she was passionate about her job and was very thorough. The dentist came in and you could tell she knew what she was doing. Didn't realize I could like a dentist this much :)
