“When it was time for my daughter to have braces, we decided to do it together. I enjoy smiling now and do it without thinking about it. I receive many compliments and recommend no one waits to improve their smile. It’s a great confidence booster!”

“I hated my smile and would hide it behind a big mustache. I had periodontal disease and had to lose all my teeth. I now have a great smile and a whole new attitude. I highly recommend Dr. Zuidema and Dr. Hess to all my friends, family, and anyone who wants a new healthy smile.”

“I came to Dr. Zuidema and Dr. Hess less than a year before my wedding with teeth that were in need of help. I told him I wanted to be able to smile with confidence on my wedding day. We knew that it was going to be close getting the work finished in time. I put my faith in them and, two weeks before my wedding, the braces came off. I was able to smile, really smile, all day for my wedding.”

“As a National Sales Manager for a Fortune 500 Company, I was concerned that having braces would be a distraction to my customers. In hindsight, I regret that I did not have the procedures completed earlier. My new smile has yielded a gain in personal confidence, numerous compliments, and a remarkable improvement in my professional appearance.”

“Going to the dentist,” for many years, was a high-anxiety exercise for me. I would toss and turn the night before fretting about my upcoming appointment. Since coming to see Drs. Zuidema and Hess, I am no longer a scaredy-cat. The experience starts with a friendly greeting from the office staff. The hygienists are gentle and careful to make sure I am relaxed and comfortable at all times. They patiently teach me the things I need to know to avoid “problem” visits. And when I do have to have extra work done, I can fully trust that the doctors are up on the latest techniques to make the procedures as pain-free as possible. Everyone at the office conveys kindness and professionalism. Now I no longer waste hours of sleep the night before a dentist visit!
