Let me start by saying that I have not seen a dentist in a very long time and I have HUGE anxiety about dental work. Dr. Van de Vyver and his staff (especially his hygienist, Samantha) are amazing, simply put. They put me at ease with their lighthearted small-talk and let me see what they were doing with a hand mirror during my cleaning, which was so helpful. When I went back to have a wisdom tooth extracted they went above and beyond to make sure I was comfortable and at ease. My anxiety about dental work is non existent now and I'm so thankful he was able to work on me quickly, efficiently and with kindness. I would recommend him to anyone, no matter how far the drive. He's great!

This was a visit for my 85 yr old mom. Everyone in the office was so pleasent and went out of there way for us. The fee is very reasonable. The entrance was not friendly for someone who can not walk well. The ramp is very far from the unmarked door to the office. We will certainly go back. I would become a patient if my insurance was excepted.

Very good cleaning experience. Dr. V. did a great job at numbing my sensitive gum line.

Dr. Van de Vyver is new in the area, not dentistry. He is friendly and upbeat. Has all the latest technology, things I never seen before. He did a filling and crown (which he makes on site). Everything went smooth. I needed one of my wisdom teeth removed which he did yesterday. I wouldn't say I enjoyed it, but he did a nice job and I'm fine today (without pain pills). I had one done many years ago and was in pain for 5 days.
