Competent, compassionate, and honest with reasonable rates. He's been my dentist for 36 years and I send people to him because he's the "best". You don't have to worry about unnecessary procedures because his integrity is unquestionable. My children and grandchildren go to him. He is excellent with children. Is there another dentist that gives his cell # to his patients for emergencies?

We have been patients of Dr. Polse's since 2005. We consider our dental health to have vastly improved under his care. Dr. Polse practices with 21st century methods and thoughtful comprehensive patient care. Also he and his office staff have created a positive welcoming environment, so much so that our daughter and grandkids are also his patients. We feel fortunate to have such a highly skilled dentist close to us here in the Elgin area.
