Today I went into the office after they had closed. Dr.Terwilliger greeted me at the desk and I asked if there was any way I could be seen today? She asked her assistant if she would stay. Together they took care of my problem. I had painful ulcers in my mouth, She put medication on them. Once we discussed what to do I went to pay her and she did not charge me! Her kindness and professionalism brought me to tears! If you are looking for an excellent dentist Dr. Terwilliger is the one for you!
Dr. Terwilliger is very knowledgable. She will take the time to explain everything. Her office is lovely and the staff are all top notch.
