Words from Our Patients
I never thought that I could say that a dentist visit could be enjoyable but I have to admit that it was. Dr. DeFinnis was absolutely wonderful and assured me that I will be able to smile again with confidence. The entire staff was very kind and professional.
So happy that I made the decision to start my dental work with Back Mountain Dental.
I hate going to the dentist but you guys put me at ease. I would recommend your office to anyone who has a problem with going. Speaking as a person who has not gone to one for 30 years out of fear. Thank you, Again I’m a guy that has anxiety about dentists and back mountain dental made me feel totally at easy absolutely no pain.
Great job back mountain dental thank you!
This was my second visit to Back Mountain Dental and I have to say that this appointment also exceeded my expectations. Kimberly, my hygienist was just incredible, she was kind, and patient, and thorough with my cleaning and answered all questions I had for her. I have been to dentists where my cleaning was very painful, but I thought that was how it was supposed to be, but I left BMD with super clean teeth and a very happy and non-painful mouth (and I am SUPER sensitive)!! My first visit was also amazing, I went because I had been having a lot of pain ever since my old dentist started replacing my silver fillings. I needed two crowns so I agreed and thought it would be a standard crown procedure with a temporary, and then having to come back in three weeks for a permanent. But NO such thing!! They prepared both of my teeth and created the crowns right there in the office, they even stayed late to finish my work! All of this work took less than 2 hours! Also, they were VERY upfront about the cost and even gave me space to contact my spouse to check in before beginning the work, when I committed to doing both crowns at the same time they gave me a discount for good measure. My technician for my crowns was just as amazing as my hygienist, and Michelle at the front desk was welcoming and accommodating! The team at Back Mountain Dental is just incredible, I highly recommend them to anyone looking for a new dentist!!
