What Our Patients Are Saying
I love my new dentist! As much as I hate to admit it, I haven't gone to the dentist is quite some time. But as soon as I walked through the door at Door Creek I felt at home and comfortable. Everyone I interacted with was friendly and helpful. I am looking forward to my long-term relationship with Door Creek.
My first time visit to Door Creek Dental office was THE BEST. Brittany and Dr. Kirkpatrick made me feel very comfortable and 'at home'. My cleaning and my examination was very thorough. I'm looking forward to my next visit in August.
The big snow storm was moving in yesterday and how nice to get a call regarding a cancellation and an earlier appointment. The staff is always very friendly and being greeted by name makes one feel a bit important, don't ya know? Mary always does a fantastic job cleaning my teeth and the conversations aren't bad either. Going to the dentist is no longer a dreaded experience. I'm so glad I found Door Creek Dental and the location is easy and convenient too.
I appreciate your team being very thorough and taking time to explain to me what was happening with my teeth. I felt like my hygienist was great at encouraging, rather than lecturing me about my teeth.
Warm atmosphere, impressive technology, helpful staff. I learned more about dental hygiene and my own teeth in this visit than I have in all my visits to other dentists combined. This is the first time I chose a dentist for myself, so I wasn't quite sure what to expect, but I am very happy with my decision.
After going to the same dentist for 30+ yrs -- changing was a little nerve racking. But Door Creek Dental was a great experience! On time appt, friendly staff & my teeth look great!
Thank you for a great experience! I was so worried about breaking my tooth and it was so easy and painless to fix. The dentist was so kind and thoughtful.
Mary has been my hygienist for more years than I can remember. She does excellent, pain-free work and gives great advice besides. Dr. K is simply the best. All employees at this clinic give exceptional service. They set the gold standard for dental practice.
I am always impressed with the care I receive at Door Creek Dental! Every single staff member I've dealt with is patient, kind and listens to my concerns. I met the new doctor yesterday and she was super friendly and also very intelligent and thorough. Doctor Kirkpatrick is just great, too! It's pretty rare when you can honestly say "I don't care which one I get - they are both fantastic!
While I say I "Loved it" and gave it 5 stars - the truth is - I absolutely loathe going to the dentist. However, this was my first visit and was made to feel welcomed, had everything explained to me, and was listened to when voicing my fears and concerns. Everyone was friendly and patient. I still despise going to the dentist - but since I have to go - I'm happy I found Door Creek Dental.
