Patient Testimonials

This content was provided by Dr. Willoughby "Had an emergency appointment for a cracked tooth. They fit me in the next day and I am ready to go the same day. Dr Willoughby always takes as much time as needed to do the job right and with NO pain!! I recommend her to anyone and everyone!"
"I love going to the dentist...now! Everyone at Chestnut Family Dentistry is like family to me. They really care about you."
"After years of displeasure with dental care, I have found a group of professionals who listen, engage me in the process and are very focused on making the process pleasant. Every procedure is carefully explained. Every single person in this practice demonstrates through their actions that they are very intent on every aspect of patient satisfaction. You are made to feel part of the process. The office is clean, modern and comfortable. They are always prompt and respect the value of your time. After many years of avoiding dental care because of the discomforts involved, I now visit Dr. Bare and her staff without apprehension. I have a bright new smile, a much healthier mouth, and far less day to day discomfort. I very highly recommend these folks. After a full year of care, I could not be more satisfied."

We are committed to providing the highest quality dental care in a beautiful pleasant atmosphere that will take your breath away as soon as you walk in our door. We have the latest up to date technology you can find in a general dental practice.

I have been coming here for several years and have always received the highest quality professional care and customer service. The staff are amazing and ease the pain and stress for someone like me who has had a lifelong fear of the dentist. I wouldn't go anywhere else for my dental needs!
