Great experience using Hires Dental. The whole staff was courteous and knowledgeable. Was taken at the time of my actual appointment, not ten or fifteen minutes after. Some of their chairs even have heat/message rollers built in!

Excellence in Dental Care I can't say enough about the excellent dental care I have received from Hires Dental Care. I being a fairly new patient feel very comfortable from the moment I enter the office. The entire staff is very friendly. I was very embarrassed by the condition of my teeth before going there, and they have never down graded me for this. They deserve 10 stars!

Employees at Hires Dental always make you feel special. The always have a smile and always call you by name ( which puzzles me because some of them have never seen me before) Carol was running late today and still took the time to come to the waiting area ,making sure I was ok, with an apology that I had to wait. Thanks for making my visits easier!!

Dr. Hires was my dentist long ago when I was a child, in the 80's. I'm 45 yrs. old now. But I stopped going there 10yrs or so ago because of insurance reasons. The other dentist that I've had since then – I was never comfortable with like I was here. This was my first visit back and that comfortable feeling was back as soon as I walked through the door. I hope I never have to go anywhere else ever again. I highly recommend Dr. Hires. I want to thank everyone there for being so nice and making me feel comfortable once again. So, thank you everyone at Dr. Hires!

I have been with Dr. Hires' office for about four years now and I enjoy my experience every time. The dental hygienists and doctors are sensitive to your needs and very friendly. Similar to getting car repairs, with dental work you rely on the expertise of the doctor to advise you on what's necessary now and what can wait. The staff at Dr. Hires' office make your choices very clear and also explain why they are recommending what they are. I don't foresee myself every going to another dentist so long as Dr. Hires is around.

I have been with Karen and Dr. Hires since my first dental appointment about 3 decades ago! The practice has grown so much but they have not lost that personal, family-style touch that makes them so special.

I have always had a great experience by the staff at Hires Dental. I have a Dentist Phobia and the women there are very patient with me and make me feel as comfortable as possible. I have and will continue to recommend them.

I can't express enough how pleased I am with my experience. As soon as I walked in the door, Katie greeted me with a smile and made me feel at ease. Once called back, Tori and Dr. Lauren put me at ease again explained to me everything that was going on. These Ladies seemed more concerned with my comfort and peace of mind than with the amount of time spent on a procedure. I really appreciated the light hearted banter - there should be more smiles at a Dentist's office. As I was coming around, Dr. Lauren herself stepped out to tell my wife all was well and what was done. Thank You so much to Hires Dental - I look forward to my next visit.

I hadn't been to the dentist for many years prior to visiting a few months ago. I felt that no judgment was passed and I was treated kindly and courteously. I highly recommend Hires to anyone looking for a dentist or not satisfied with their current dentist. Highly professional, caring and thorough. A+++.
