What Our Patients Are Saying

"Dr. Hildebrand and his entire staff are absolutely wonderful. They are all very patient and caring. Dr. Hildebrand is awesome at making the kids feel comfortable and at ease. I feel that his treatment plans are always very well explained and very affordable in price. I have recommended many of our friends and they too love his practice. I wouldn't go to anyone else."

— Kelly N.

"I really appreciate how friendly, positive, and kind everyone in the office is. Dr. Hildebrand and his staff took care of my kids very well, and I loved them so much I came back for me! They are always willing to take the time to explain anything, from the treatment to the financial side of things, which I greatly appreciate."

— Daniele

"This practice is a wonderful place, especially for teens/children. You can tell they go the extra mile to focus on young adults and in doing so help them to feel more at ease. My 14-year-old daughter (who does not enjoy dentist appointments) actually likes the atmosphere here and isn't nervous at all. Dr. Hildebrand and his staff just seem to have a way with their patients.."

— Kayleigh V.

"Everyone at the office is super cool. They're all so kind on the phone and in person. When I come in, it's like I'm their best friend that's been out of town for a while and they welcome me back! The service provided by Penny, Missy, and the others is awesome!!! They're always very personable and professional. Dr. H has a wonderful team, and they show it every visit!"
