Whenever I go to this practice, my experience is that “they’ve got me.” Even as a person with a fairly anxious temperament, I can relax with the hygienist’s care (have The good fortune of seeing Kristyn for many years). And theShow more same goes for Dr. Opperman: I have never felt better informed nor better, more sensitively taken care of with a dentist than in his care. Everyone in the practice also have a sense of humor; and seem to consistently treat each other with warmth, kindness and concern as well as me. Bonus: maybe the cutest “therapy dog” I have ever seen, a gentle, sweet presence; not-intrusive but right there to engage or cuddle if you care to invite him. Thanks to all! (This heartfelt review is typed on tiny i-keys, so please forebear typos!)
I've been cared for by Dr. Opperman and his staff for several years now. Everyone is professional, skilled and personable. I love getting my teeth cleaned because all the hygienists that have treated me do so with great skill. Show moreI never worry about getting my gums jabbed with an instrument because they are so deft in their craft. The billing person has been very helpful in accessing my insurance company and explaining what they will, or not, cover and billing is clear and efficient. At the top of this apparently happy staff is Dr. Opperman, kind, gentle, supportive, knowledgeable and skilled. I'm very happy to be getting my dental care in such a lovely place. And they have a sweet dog that's hypoallergenic. What more could one want?!

Always fun to visit Dr. Joshua, although I missed Benny today.
Dr Opperman is fantastic. Super nice and knowledgeable. His practice is well run and professional. They are honest and trustworthy. No trying to upsell you on things you don’t need, which I encountered in other practices. Highly recommend.
Everyone at this dental office is wonderful :) Super friendly, helpful, and kind. Quick note: there's a dog on staff here that wanders the front of the office. It's a lovely dog! Very friendly, quiet, and welcoming. Something to be aware of though for any new patients who don't want that sort of surprise.
Jeannie, as always, did a thorough and gentle job. It was a good experience.
I had a whole molar come out while flossing Dec. 24th, a surprise! On Dec26th I called the emergency number, not knowing if this was a "real" emergency. Dr. fit me into the schedule on the next day for an evaluation and I learned what to do until a week later when there was a long enough appointment available. His advice was just what I needed.
On time, professional, quality service. I’ve had nothing but good experiences with his team. They do a great job of listening to and addressing any concerns
Staff is so kind, great care and atmosphere
