Reviews By Our Satisfied Patients

  • "I have been a patient of Dr. Kernstock's since I graduated high school and choose my own dentist. He is the sweetest most gentle and nicest guy. Not only is he a great guy and an awesome dentist but his staff is always helpful and caring and always wants what is best for the customer. Going to the dentist really is like seeing old friends once every 6 months. My son loves them also he has never been bummed when he has to go to the dentist. Always a good experience!!!!"

  • "Always excellent service and care. The assistants are quite thorough with the cleaning and always have helpful advice to help keep your teeth in good shape. Had a few procedures here including removing 4 wisdom teeth and everything the procedures went smoothly and I was offered multiple alternative treatment options going into it.

    Doctor Kernstock is knowledgeable and lean on the side of preventative care rather than going in and drilling away everytime."
