I have been going here for over 20 years. Staff (Pam) and others always kind and prompt. Extreamly fair on pricing. Does the insurance for us. Honest and thorough. Always explains every move. I grew up In a dentist office, dad was a dentist, I have trusted John and tonja for all my family and have recommended him to friends and will continue. Kim in cleaning is great. Not one single issue ever. Can't understand how above person walks away from a 20 year relationship over one thing or miss understanding. Very shallow of them. I HIGHLY RECOMEND UDA.

Was sent for TMJ issues. In so much pain and was told to take over the counter medicine. Weeks later still in a lot of pain and very sad now because of this. Needed relief but didn't get it. Very sad that doctors won't help you. I bet they get relief if they we're in my position.

Not enough room to write a review here. Let's just say she broke my jaw removing a simple wisdom tooth. I had to go to another dentist to fix the mess she left!!!! She needs to loose her license as a dentist!!!

We have been patients as a family for 22 years and never had bad experience until recently. My co-worker hadn't been to them in years and called when she lost a filling yesterday and they worked her today. But my family had an appt scheduled for a filling for weeks and was in the chair for 60 seconds, told he had to see the hygienist for cleaning and xrays and sent on his way. Very rude and disrespectful, no offer to xray or explanation. He can't take pain meds so left in pain with hurt feelings. He said he'd never been treated that way in his life. I read one other review about a new DDS there that was unpleasant as well. When we asked what happened that we had made an appt for a filling we were told it was just to look at the tooth, and they had no good explanation. We got him in to see another DDS next week that will fill his tooth on first visit. The receptionist blamed everyone else and the DDS didn't even check to make sure there was no abcess. So disappointed. Sad indeed.

Skilled placement of 2 dental implants. Dr. Witkowski is the expert. ...10 years later, no problems whatsoever. I just found out I may need 2 more implants, and I wouldn't trust anyone else.

The staff was extremely rude. They performed unauthorized procedures. The doctor did not take the time to discuss cavities that she supposed found. Tried to overcharge for services. Avoid them.

Great equipment, my old dentist did not have good resources because my old dentist did not have good numb needle.

Dr. Witkowski is a gifted surgeon. After treating me for 40 years and more than 7 extractions, I have always had a positive experience and NEVER a complication. Highly recommend!
Tips & Advices
While going to the orthodontist can be difficult, sometimes it's necessary. If you are concerned about tooth alignment, feel your jaw shift, or are experiencing problems like difficulty chewing or grinding your teeth, it's time to see an orthodontist.
There are generally three types of braces patients can be fitted for at the orthodontist:
  • The more traditional option, bands, wrap around most of a patient's tooth.
  • Brackets are the most popular, applied directly to the tooth in metal or plastic form.
  • Lingual braces are brackets attached to the back of teeth.
People of all ages can wear braces to straighten their teeth, but it is most common to be fitted for these adjustments between the ages of 10 and 14. This is the time when teeth are better able to be straightened because the head and mouth are still developing.
The American Board of Orthodontics recommends finding a dental specialist that is board-certified, offers free or reduced-price consultations, and displays qualities such as trustworthiness, ability to communicate effectively, and attentiveness.
Orthodontists must complete a four-year undergraduate program to gain admission to dental school. After earning a Doctor of Dental Science degree at an accredited four-year dental program, students must then either complete a post-degree training program or one to two years residency in orthodontics. Then they need to earn a state license in order to practice. Certain states also require board certification.
