"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."
"I cannot say enough good things about Dr Orser and staff! I have been a patient for well over 20 years. They make the dental experience as good as it gets, even for this total dental phobic. They have consistently gone above and beyond. They are absolutely the best. I am grateful for their expertise and the amazing care I have received!"
"I'm glad we chose Springer/Orser Dentistry for our dental needs. The entire team is very friendly and professional."
"Dr. Orser has taken care of my teeth for about twenty years. Carrie, my hygienist, has been working with me to reduce the pocket depths between my teeth and gums. I have been fighting a running battle with gum disease and these folks have helped me get it under control. I recommend this practice to anybody who wants to keep their teeth. Last week (Feb 2021), my new hygienist, Victoria, took care of my regular check-up. She was up to speed on my case, greeted me cordially, and basically picked up where my previous hygienist left off. I have nothing but praise for everybody at this practice. I recommend this practice to anyone who needs people who care about your teeth."
"Dr Orser and Susan were absolutely terrific. Great experience. Would highly recommend them to anyone looking for a great dental care."
