"I’ve been with this practice for over 40 years. Even after moving 30 miles away 35 years ago, I never gave a thought to finding a dentist closer to my home. The knowledge Drs Orser and Springer and the client care they provide is amazing. I have never felt in better hands than when I had a monster infection and after months of attempts to save my tooth, we ended up extracting it. They did everything possible but it kept coming back and only after the extraction was it apparent that it never would have healed on its own. Best decision ever. The entire staff is amazing and I’m really thankful that I met Dr Orser while making his business deposit at my teller window 40+ years ago."
"Dentists are NOT all the same. I found that out quickly when I started with Dr. Springer and decided to try someone local because it was more convenient. I am now back with Dr. Springer and his amazing staff. Dr. Springer is unique in that he cares so much about his patients, he listens, explains what is going on and goes above and beyond. He is incredibly thorough and will spend the extra time needed to make sure your tooth is perfect. His staff is amazing. They are ALL welcoming, nice and always have a smile on their face. You can tell that Dr. Springer takes amazing care of his people and it shows. My hygienist Angie is the best! And I have had others, they are ALL great! Not to mention the technology they use for teeth cleaning is top of the line!! The office itself is clean, modern and exactly what you would want to see/walk into when you visit your dentist. I would 100% recommend Dr. Springer to all my friends, near AND far."
"I'm glad we chose Springer/Orser Dentistry for our dental needs. The entire team is very friendly and professional."

"Highly trained and qualified staff, state of the art technology, comfortable waiting area and a warm friendly family feel. I was experiencing gum issues due to inadequate cleanings from a different practice. I saw Dr Springer and my issues were quickly addressed and have greatly improved. Thanks!"
