An unbelievable process with a very accommodating staff. I made an emergency next day appointment and was done in hours. My personal dental journey has been pretty traumatic over the years and I was forced to face it when I recently lost a front crown… yes, a FRONT crown! I arrived just after 7am and was able to join my 9:30am zoom call. The doctor provided a service no one has been able to provide, or offered, so I’m extremely grateful. Though I’m far from the end of my dental journey, they were able to provide me a little more time to plan things out. I’m in the middle of a big move out of state, but wish I was able to complete my journey with this office. Dr Porter made recommendations for me going forward and I plan to follow through. I just hope to find another dentist that can provide the same type of service.

As a former dental sales professional, I have seen and been in hundreds of dental practices. In my opinion, I have never found a better practice than this one. The women of the staff are friendly, knowledgeable, and extremely helpful. Dr. Porter is extremely talented and is always improving his skill set. You owe it to your self and your dental health to participate in your dental health journey with them.

Rather than using prose, I'll use adjectives to describe my experience: friendly people, spotless office, always on-time, provide detailed explanations of the procedure to be used "in laymen's language", certainly NOT your typical dentist's office!!

Everything you look for in a dental practice is right here! Great staff that is kind, friendly, and amazing at what they do. Dr. Porter has replaced several of my old amalgam fillings and has done several crowns--which he does in house in the same visit. I was very nervous, but everyone was compassionate and patient. What helped soothe my anxiety was that I have a highly skilled and talented dentist doing the work. I would definitely recommend him!

Best dental care ever in this area. Not only does Dr. Porter offer every kind of dental care needed, including invisalign, his diligence and follow up are superb, the hygienists there are top notch - and always impressed with cleanliness and safety precautions - pre covid and now. I strongly encourage any who are looking for a dental practice that can do everything and are the best at what they do, this is the place!

If you are searching for a dentist, search no further, this is the place for you. I suffered from dentophobia for years going from one dentist office to the next, but I soon as I walked in the door that changed. This is the most exceptional dentist office of all. They really make me feel like part of the family. Dr. Porter and his entire staff always see to it that you are well taken care of. You will always enter and leave with a smile on your face.
