Our Happy Clients
Grateful Dental has been phenomenal. My husband and I are new to the area and needed to find a dentist. Through Yelp, we decided to give them a try! The five star ratings our true and I would rate higher if there were a higher rating. The staff is efficient, kind, caring, compassionate and competent! The office is welcoming and clean. Most importantly, it is excellent dental care with no pain. I can honestly say it is the first filling I have had done in years with no pain. They understand the most modern techniques including digital X-rays Sensors which was neat to be able to understand my specific teeth. Thank you Grateful Dental!
Dr. Wittmus is by far the best dentist I have ever had in my life! He is very caring and knowledgeable and always does what is best for his patients’ well-being. He lets you know exactly what is going on and thoroughly explains all options. And to top it off, he is very timely and compassionate as well. The office staff are extremely professional and skilled, and all together they make a 5 star team. Grateful Dental rocks!!!
I just want to thank you tremendously for getting me in, for your patience, caring ways/kindness, great personality/sense of humor and knowledge that goes even beyond the 3D way of life. It was such a pleasure meeting you and your beautiful, patient staff- val and Julie (such angels)! It’s unfortunate I didn’t see/meet you earlier, but needless to say, I’m grateful (no pun intended) for having manifested you into my life at the present moment and will spread the love of your practice to others I know! Truly thank you- I have never experienced a dentist like you and I’m glad you created a benchmark as to what to look for in a dentist/in people overall. Thank you for your guidance! I thoroughly enjoyed the short 2 visits I had.
