Our Happy Clients
Absolutely phenomenal! LOVE the entire staff at Grateful Dental. Which, coming from someone who used to have to be dragged to the dentist, is no small feat. The staff is friendly, welcoming and kind. I even make my own appointments which I am told is something adults do. Knowing I used to fear (note the past tense) dentist’s visits, they always ensure I am aware of what is happening and what the next steps are. Dr. Wittmus is just as informative and straightforward. No one is trying to push anything on you at all. Everyone is efficient yet immeasurably kind. I never feel like Dr. Wittmus or the staff are rushing to get to the next appointment and yet, I am in and out with everything taken care of, all my questions answered and a warm, moist towel.
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!
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!
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.
I’ve traveled 100 miles round trip to see Dr Wittmus for 20 years. He knows his craft and I wouldn’t consider going anywhere else. He makes it his job to see that most of my visits are for check ups. I’ve had every imaginable type of work done, always with great results and manageable costs. One more thing. Does your dentist call you at home to check in on you? Dr Wittmus does it regularly. I’ll keep driving 2 hours to see someone who looks out for my teeth and my general health…every day of the week!
I couldn’t be happier with the care and expertise I receive as a patient of Grateful Dental. I found Dr. Wittmus online through his website and was impressed with his credentials, teaching, and volunteer work. He is the best dentist I have ever had- extremely knowledgeable, caring, and respectful. The office is has convenient street parking which I have always been able to find a spot right in front. They use up to date equipment and technology, which says to me that they care about giving the best treatment to their patients. His office staff is always kind and courteous in their care, and they do whatever they can to make billing my insurance super easy. I am very happy with the professional advice and care that I have received over the past several years as a patient of their practice, and I would 100% recommend them!
Dr.Wittmus and his staff are tremendously professional, courteous, knowledgeable, helpful, friendly. It is an absolute pleasure to go to the dentist when it’s at this office!
Dr. Wittmus & his staff rule! I haven’t been to a dentist in years & went to them today. My whole visit was positive. Great atmosphere, good energy & down to earth people!
I have been going to Grateful Dental since I was a kid. Even though I live in the suburbs now, I still make the commute to the city because he is the nicest, most professional dentist around.
