What Our Patients Are Saying
My first time there and had a great experience, I will go back!
Wonderful. I have taken two kids under 6 to NW Dental Group in the past week. We saw two different hygienists and two different dentists. They were all wonderful and great with the kids. My kids are actually excited to go back and my toddler points out "there's my dentist!" when we drive past. Having moved to the area within the past year I had no idea where to take my family, especially since my kids saw a specifically pediatric dentist where we used to live. I couldn't be more pleased with the choice we made to go to Northwest Dental. My husband and I will be going there too.
The staff are friendly and explain treatment plans. They have some early and late hours and Saturdays as well.
Every appointment and checkup--> Up-to-date and well maintained equipment, Technically up-to-date and skilled staff, and everyone has been personable, kind, prompt and on schedule and willing to listen....for as many years as I have been treated at Northwest Dental!
I felt safe and environment meets Covid requirements. All staff are friendly and professional. Both Dr. Post and Bridget made my experience positive. They treated me in a manner of caring and expertise. Thank you!
