What Our Clients Say About Us

  • "Friendly staff, very professional, extremely clean, great with kids
    Friendly staff as soon as you walk in with a warm greeting. Took my 18 month old son who is very nervous when it comes to strangers. They were awesome with him and did everything they could to make him comfortable. They took a photo & printed it out for us for his first visit as a keepsake, put a movie on for him to keep him calm, let him touch the tooling to warm him up to it and were super friendly. I feel very comfortable knowing my son is in great, caring hands. I love this dental office."
    Gabrielle H.
  • "Highly Professional and Friendly Staff
    I have never received such pleasantry at a dental office until today. I had an appointment to remove my wisdom tooth and my nerves were at an all time high, but they were immediately calmed once I entered the doors. The environment is so welcoming and the staff is amazing. Thanks to Scott Lefevers and all associates who assisted me with my care! Lastly, I would like to give a special shout out to Mrs. AnnaBell who is the face of this establishment. She definitely sets the tone and represents them well!"
    LaTarsha B.
  • "Great family dentistry
    Our family has seen the LaFevers team for about 6 years. Our kids have been seen as early as 2 years, and having patient hygienists and dentists can really shape their whole dental hygiene future. It should also be mentioned we have 4 kids that are seen, and they manage to get them all in the same day/time. With that said I can't be with all my kids at the same time and the staff can communicate to me through their great communication with each other as my kids are all being seen simultaneously. With my husband TDY or deployed constantly, it's nice to have dental go smoothly with so many kiddos."

  • "AWESOME
    I am 70 years old and LaFEVERS Dental Team is THE best dental practice I have experienced in my whole life!! Dr. LaFEVERS extracted my tooth flawlessly- I felt no pain or discomfort! Amelia- Dental Assistant was competent and friendly; Annabel was professional and cordial. Make this your dentist and you won’t regret it."

  • "Great service! Very professional and friendly staff.
    Great experience from the moment I walked through the door. The front desk staff were professional, very friendly and helpful. All of the dental technicians I saw were great! Each explained everything they were doing and made me feel comfortable. The dentist was very professional as well and actually made my visit enjoyable. I definitely recommend this office!"
    Brian H.
  • "So friendly & welcoming, great experience!
    As soon as we walked in we were greeted by the front desk, she made us feel welcome and not at all awkward like we could have felt since this was our first time. My 2 daughters had their first appointment there today. I was so happy with the way they were treated. When my oldest had to get X-rays taken she got a little upset, they were so patient with her, and explained every bit of what they were doing. I felt like they were not trying to rush through cleaning 2 little kids teeth (ages 2&4) even when they got upset, the dentist stayed calm and talked them through it. Definitely impressed!"
    Ashlee S.
  • "Absolutely the best doctors and staff, hands down.
    From the moment you walk in the door, until you walk back out at the end of your appointment, you are treated fabulously. A warm and friendly smile greets you upon entering, and every member of the staff is equally as friendly. They are prompt, professional and do everything possible to keep you comfortable during any procedure. Shortly after we joined this practice, my husband had a dental emergency that needed immediate attention. Even though they were extremely busy, he was seen that same day. The problem was taken care of much to my husband's relief. They gave the same fabulous care as always and spent all the necessary time with him to fix the problem. If you want excellent dental care, this is the place to be."
    Beverly H.
  • "Awesome Team!

Dr Lafevers was very pleasant and professional did a awesome job with my procedure the other team members are awesome also and when I say team members they work as a team to get the job done they make you feel very comfortable I can't say my visit was awesome the whole team was awesome thank you guys!"
    Sharon W.
  • "Incredibly friendly, knowledgeable and wonderful service.
    My spouse and I haven’t been to the dentist in years so we both had some anxiety about going. The team at LaFevers was warm and welcoming from the moment we walked in the door. They gave both of us tours of the office (as new patients) and explained every step of what they were doing when taking xrays and cleaning our teeth. They also give you convenient options as far as breaking down fillings or whatever procedures you’re doing to fit your schedule and budget. I can’t say enough positive things about this team. We both highly recommended them to anyone. We both left informed and happy with our visit."
    Nikki L.
  • "Outstanding customer service
    I called concerning a crown that had come off the night before. Despite one of the dentists being out, I was given an appointment that took place about two hours after my phone call. The problem was corrected promptly. Thanks for your quick and caring response."
    Boris H.
  • "We switched offices because a friend recommended LaFevers because they worked really well with kids who had severe dental anxiety. Our dental hygienist was awesome with my son And helped calm him down and ease his fears. Their office is highly professional and greeted us with smiles and acted excited to see him when he walked in. I Am extremely happy we drove the extra distance to switch practices."
