    Great experience. Very professional and accommodating. Susie was friendly and knowledgeable while performing the cleaning. Nice added touch with Lynn at the front desk who cheers up your day. Thanks again, looking forward to coming back for a follow up.

    I do not like visiting the dentist. But my experience with Dr. Paul Deratnay was amazing from the beginning - from my communications with the receptionist Lynn, to my Hygienist Susie, and finally meeting Dr. Paul. My highlight was Susie - she is warm and approachable. She made me feel very comfortable in the chair, plus gave me details on what she's doing and how I could better care for my teeth. First time I felt a little more relaxed at a dentist! I'll definitely be going back to see Susie soon!

    I had a really great experience with Dr. Deratnay's office, a lot was done to make sure I was comfortable, and a plan for my care was well explained during my initial examination. Everyone was friendly and professional, and other great perks like my future bookings and insurance coverage being handled for me. I feel confident that my dental health is in good hands at this practice!

    Loved my experience. Barb was welcoming. Dr. Paul was great. But Suzy was the highlight of my visit! She was very nice and made me feel comfortable. What I enjoyed most was how informative she was, providing explanations for what she was doing or her recommendations for how I should take care of my teeth. 10/10 would recommend.

    I was brought in for my cleaning only a few minutes after my scheduled time. The hygienist was very friendly, helped me understand what she was doing and how I can improve my dental health. Dr. Deratnay was also very efficient and unlike other dentists did not attempt to get me to get services and products I do not need. The offices are in a great location and everything is very clean and modern. The receptionists were also easy to work with and made sure everything was sorted out with my insurance properly, and called me to confirm. My teeth have never been cleaner.

    Everything was so timely and friendly and they really made me feel at home even though it was my first visit. The hygienist was kind and gentle and described the whole process as it unfolded. I’ve never had a better experience in a dental office. Also, I have never been to a dentist where so many of the staff have remained for such a long time.

    Very nice dentist. The hygienist, Susie, was so gentle and it was greatly appreciated. Lots of tips for what to do at home to avoid having to come back. If you go, it’s up the stairs on the left of the building address (had a little trouble finding it as I was running late.)

    I have a bit of anxiety when it comes to dentists so this is why i haven’t been to a dentist in so long. They were patient enough to go through what they were going to do in my mouth. Which instrument they were going to use and even show me. My anxiety was less but overall this is what I need assurances
