"I have ALWAYS been very fearful of going to the dentist. My experiences at Hebert Dental have made me wish I’d have started seeing them years before I did. The staff are all super nice and very caring. One of their main priorities is to make sure that you are comfortable and aware of each step they take. Walking through the doors at Hebert Dental is like coming home to family!"

"My mother is in a memory care facility and her dentist was 60 mi away, they were kind enough to get her in and fix her tooth and we were well taken care, they were polite courteous and explained everything to us. They found a way to fit her in and take care of her problem tooth. Thank you, they were all great to work with and took very good care of my 92 yr old mom."

- Sherry L.
