Office staff unable to write down correct details of email address. You have sent this to the wrong person. Maybe you will work on the wrong tooth.

Dr. Koester is an outstanding dentist. He is very sensitive and empathetic, has great manual skills and sound judgment. He is in the process of putting veneers on my four front teeth. He advised a more conservative treatment (only 4 teeth) instead of more, which I appreciate. He works well with all the (well-trained and professional) staff and is very down-to-earth and friendly, too. Highest recommendation.

dr koester is a great dentist, and a nice guy. he is a positive factor to this dental practice. however, i think this survey is disrespectful to the dental hygienist, heather, which was the purpose of this dental visit. your survey doesn't even acknowledge her, and she is a key person for the success of this dental office.

Dr. Koester is very personable and has always taken time to answer any questions I may have. Heather, even with the power washer and the money maker, is great! She does an excellent job and it is always a pleasure to sit in her chair, well almost always.

everything went fine until I got home from office. I was given some new toothpaste. Did I just pay 12.oo for toothpaste? I asked about it because I have well water, but I never asked to buy it.

I have a lot of anxiety relative to previous dental experiences. However, I can honestly say the experiences with Dr Koester eliminated the fear and anxiety I previously felt. He was supportive, tailored the treatment to my needs and was not judgmental of my fears! I highly recommend him!
