The majority of these reviews are from family and friends. Painter should have at most a one star rating. He claims people have cavities when they do not have any cavities.

I have been looking for a Dentist like Dr. Painter for a very long time. I used to say I would rather have open heart surgery than go to the Dentist. Not any more. Dr. Painter spent a lot of time and has had a lot of patience working to make me comfortable while he is fixing my teeth. I no longer hate going to the Dentist. The office is a very unique and relaxing place. The folks that work there are always smiling and very happy. You can tell they really enjoy their jobs. Thanks Dr. Painter!!!
