What our patients have to say...

"I presented to Dr. Rebecca Swett with a chipped front tooth, badly stained teeth, and a mosaic of different colored fillings in decaying teeth. After a few visits she transformed my teeth (ME and my smile) into something I feel very good about. Dr. Swett made the effort to not just do the job - but maximize me looking great. I also appreciated her excellent listening skills and (BONUS) she has great Novocain administration technique. Everyone I've come into contact with in her office is just wonderful and efficient. I could not possibly give Dr. Swett and this dental office a higher recommendation. I feel blessed to be their patient."

"Since my children were young, they would come with me to my office visits and play in the waiting area with the fun toys. Once they began having their own appointments, it was never scary for them. Along with their staff, David and Rebecca were always gentle, comforting and actually made the cleaning fun. Now that I have teenagers, office visits continue to be pleasant experiences for the whole family. We love David and Rebecca Swett and think they are the best!"
Lee
"Our entire family have been patients of David and Rebecca Swett for many years. Both Dr. David and Dr. Rebecca have provided caring attention and kept both of our children cavity free! The hygienists always remember us and are friendly and professional. When we have to have a special procedure, we know that both Dr. David and Dr. Rebecca will take the extra time to make sure we are comfortable and relaxed. They even offer Bose noise-cancelling headphones if the work is a little noisy. From root canals to crowns to regular cleanings and x-rays, we always feel that we are getting top-notch service from the best dentists in town."

"David and Rebecca Swett and their caring staff take wonderful care of my teeth. I have had a lifetime of issues with my teeth and gums and am extremely picky about my dentists. I needed a very difficult procedure last year and the doctors' and staff's TLC and personal touch made the experience relatively pleasant. They have seen me after hours for emergencies and they also take excellent care of both my parents. Going to the dentist is a pleasure! They are the best!"
Ann L.
"Being one who does not like go to either the doctor or dentist, I was somewhat of a skeptic when my wife told me how great Drs. David and Rebecca Swett treated her. I have now been a patient for over three years and my wife was right. Every experience has resulted in not only first class preventive treatment but true professionalism mixed with a friendly and caring staff. In my 50 plus years of dental treatment, I have never experienced better treatment, been so informed on prevention and enjoyed the time spent with the great staff and David and Rebecca."
