I met Dr. Luann when my daughter was very young. She became both my dentist and my daughters dentist. Today my daughter is 32 years old, has a beautiful smile, and twin 8 year old boys. Dr. Lunan and her staff continue to oversee the smiles of my family, twins included. We have a lot to smile about.

The entire experience of going to the dentist was so frightening to me before I went to Dr. Lunan. The very first time there, my experience was great, reassuring, kind and gentle. The let me explain my issues with previous dentists and the trouble I have with my mouth and jaw. They saw to it that I was made comfortable, warm and they explained everything they were going to do. I have been a patient of Dr. Lunan and staff for many years. I would not go to any other dentist. I love them all.

I have already recommended Dr Lunan to both my family and friends. I broke a temporary crown and called her office not knowing the office was on vacation. I left a message and one of her staff members immediately called me back to schedule an appointment as soon as possible. Sandy came in on her vacation day and replaced my temporary crown. Needless to say I was very grateful. All the women in the office are wonderful!
