What our patients say about us
I was so scared to go to the dentist, and Dr. Wenzel was amazing. He is kind, patient, and talks you through everything. He is the best!
Excellent, thoughtful, and prompt care. Dr. Wenzel did a fantastic job in diagnosing my tooth problem and then taking immediate steps to remedy it, making sure I was comfortable the entire time.Great environment and great care.
Highly recommend Dr. Matthew Wenzel! Honest assessment on what is necessary dental work and what isn't. Before seeing Dr. Wenzel, I visited another dentist who wanted to do two crowns (tune of $1,200.) Dr. Wenzel said it was not necessary at that point and saved me from spending a small fortune.
