Our Happy Clients
Its very difficult to feel relaxed in a dentist chair with the drills going and the needles doing what they do, but somehow Dr Wittmus accomplishes this. I haven’t been to a dentist in over 10 yrs and I’m so glad I found these people to take care of me (as they do an amazing job). Neglecting your teeth can impact your overall health and I’m so glad the doctor cleaned out an infection that no telling how long I’ve been carrying around. Thanks Grateful Dental!
Dr. Wittmus is the best! I have been going there since I was a kid and it is so comfortable to go there. All of the staff is fabulous, everyone has your best interest at heart and Dr. Wittmus is talented, honest, personable, and reliable. It honestly feels like sitting with friends while getting your teeth squeaky clean! Love, love, love it! I will definitely stay there and send my kids there. You gotta go 😉
Dr. J and staff are absolutely awesome. After a weekend of extreme pain and consideration of a trip to County (God forbid), a friend recommended I call his office. They set me up with an appointment that day and I ended up with two painless root canals the next. I cannot possibly offer a better dentistry. Friendly and cozy, tucked away on the NW side, they’re definitely worth the trip. Can’t wait for my next appointment.
I had neglected my teeth for awhile and upon a friends recommendation I came here. I couldn’t have found a more perfect dentist. I felt comforted, always get encouraged with progress and never made to feel guilty for neglecting my teeth. An appointment always seems like a visit with friends with the professionalism you would expect from skilled craftsmen. They make it easy to not be afraid of your teeth. The cost is unbelievably reasonable, usually the cost of one night out on the town. So stay in one night and treat your teeth right, Dr. Wittmus is your guy.
