When I started seeing Dr. Painter, I had unresolved dental problems. He has corrected all the problems that I had. I have been very happy with his excellent service.

Dr. Painter has been our dentist for 25 years. He is caring, knowledgeable, ethical, and, what one really wants with one's dentist, a perfectionist. I continue to have him as our dentist even though, due to moving, he is an hr away. We trust him with all our dental care.
