“Dr. Spaulding and Staff, I want to take the opportunity to send a heartfelt Thank You! I was a little reluctant to have two crowns replaced. It has truly been life changing. I have no more discomfort or embarrassment when out dining with friends!! I can’t thank you enough.”

“I have always been very happy with Spaulding Dental Co. Everyone from the office staff to the hygienist is wonderful. Dr. Spaulding went out of her way to see that I was connected to people who could care for me after a fall. This was on a Friday evening and it meant a lot to me that I felt reassured that everything was going to be okay! I also have had great checkups with Dr. Rogers and was very pleased with some work she did recently. I would definitely recommend this practice!”

“My children and I see Dr. Hansen for our dental care and could not be happier. Dr. Hansen and her staff are great with my young children. They are kind and gentle and my children never complain when they have to go to the dentist. My son especially loves the hidden treasure chest. We have never waited very long to get into our appointment and we are always greeted with a beautiful smile.”
