Wonderful!!!!
Not sure why we didn’t come here sooner! Everyone at Dr. Hersey’s office is so kind. My girls first appointment was with them today and they came out saying, “they loved it and can’t wait to go back!” Seriously, what child says that about the dentist…. Mine do!!! Thank you so much for the wonderful care.

Wow! I can’t say enough about Dr. Hersey and his team. I am not one to leave reviews but my 4 year old son had a wonderful first experience. He did not have a good experience with his last dentist so he was nervous about going. He is also generally anxious so that added to things. Not only did everything go better than expected, but he left saying “nothing hurt and this is my favorite dentist.” He couldn’t stop talking about it. He also wasn’t bothered by the x rays which is amazing being that he has a strong gag reflex. We will definitely be making Dr. Hersey my son’s regular dentist!

Very friendly and professional staff!!!
Our youngest kiddos have ASD and sensory processing disorders, one is non-verbal. Going to medical appointments is never easy. This office and Dr. Hersey are absolutely amazing and go above and beyond to ensure our children get the dental care they need. We really appreciate them and their dedication to children of all abilities!

Dr. Hersey & everyone in the office are so great! They are always so patient and kind. My daughter had her first “big girl” appointment today & I was nervous. Casey was so sweet with her & made the appointment fun. My daughter’s been talking about her since we left!

I found staff to be very friendly and have an approachable demeanor. My daughter sat in the dentist chair for the first time and Gwen went above and beyond to make it a positive experience. She gave her options when possible, explained procedures in simplified terms my 2 almost 3 year old could understand and let her feel each instrument before it went in her mouth. Dr. Hershey was very warm and also took time to build rapport. Thanks to them my daughter has zero fear of the dentist and is looking forward to her next checkup!

What an amazing team! They go above and beyond to make the experience for kids not only a comfortable one, but a FUN one. Their lobby is fun and inviting with a child sized door that leads into it. They have character themed toothbrushes to choose from, fun sunglasses for the kids to wear, a HUGE selection of flavors of polish, and a prize tower for them to get a toy at the end. They explained everything they were going to do to my son and let him be a part of it. They even took a picture of him with the dentist to send home for a memory of his first visit there. My 3yr old son left saying he had fun and asked if he could go back. From the front desk, to the hygienist and the doctor, this team is the best - you couldn’t find a better experience for your kids. We won’t go anywhere else. Thank you so much to this wonderful team!

I brought both of my children this morning to see Dr. Hersey for their bi-annual visits. They’re 8 months and 2 years old. He was calm, patient, and gentle in his approach. He made us feel like he had all of the time in the world for us, for our questions. His staff is energetic and totally child centered. They all made us feel so comfortable in the office! Even the hygienists not working with us stopped to say hi or wave! So thankful to have found our forever home for my children’s dental needs!

Professional but also friendly and approachable. Dr. Hersey did a great job with putting my daughter at ease. He made sure to talk to me afterward and then followed up a couple of days later by phone. I highly recommend.

Dr. Hersey and his staff are always amazing. They've been taking care off my daughters since they were both 6 months old, and every visit we've had since then has been positive. They treat everyone with kindness and warmth, and make sure that the kids are comfortable and happy throughout. Their safety precautions during Covid are impressive and much appreciated!
