about image


"Highly recommended! Set an appointment today. Registration process is very quick because they told me to fill out the paperworks online before coming to the clinic. Done panoramic x-ray asap. Immediately seated inside the clinic/dental chair and seen by Dr. Thurber. We’ve decided for tooth extraction. Dr. Thurber is very professional. Done my tooth extraction very fast. Maybe only around 5 minutes. I had a great experience. Thank you so much too to the very accommodating and professional staffs."

"Been going there a couple times and really loved the staff, James, the assistant, and everyone else there. They make sure you are comfortable, well taken care of, and provide the best service I had in years. Quick, efficient, welcoming, and safe! Love it!"

"Dr. Thurber is the absolute best in the area. I lost my top front teeth in an accident in my teens and wore various bridges for 40 years. When it was finally time to pull the last of the teeth left (gum infection, etc) I asked everyone I knew in the health field who they liked, and even asked online. Dr. Thurber kept coming up at the top of recommendations. The extraction process went well, and when I got my temporary upper dentures he relined them for me every month, more if I had any discomfort. The office staff were kind, considerate, and I came to view them as my friends. After 6 months I got my final upper denture, and it fits like a dream. No pain, and I don't need to use any adhesives. The color is perfect. I feel so badly for people I meet with badly fitting painful dentures, whose dentist never did the recommended monthly relines. He is conscientious, great with making you look as natural as possible, and kind. I can't recommend this place enough!"

"This group is always so nice and helpful. They're smiles and kindness is amazing. Dr Thurber is so down to earth. This is a great group I would highly recommend them."

"Dr. Thurber is amazing along with his staff . After getting butchered by another dentist and two weeks of serious pain , he was able to pull my two teeth . He did this very quickly and efficiently. I will be a loyal patient to this practice from now on ."
