Patient testimonials

I highly recommend Dr. Cary Dunne. He is a caring, compassionate and a perfectionist in his dental work. I fell in my kitchen and broke my front crowns. I hadn't been to a dentist in many years. I contacted Dr. Dunne's office and was immediately seen the next day. I had two extensive visits prior to getting four new crowns. Dr. Dunne called me personally after each visit to see how I was doing. Needless to say I was very impressed. I now have a beautiful set of new crowns. And I have a NEW DENTIST being Dr. Cary Dunne. Again, I highly recommend Dr Cary Dunne. Emily H.

My family and I have been patients for many years. The entire team is awesome! Competent, professional and friendly - they stand behind their work and want the best for their clients. They are great at keeping us on our regular cleaning and maintenance schedule and send reminders via email and text. And if you have a need that can't wait, they do a great job of getting you in right away. Beautiful job on crowns and implant work as well. Happy to recommend. Originally posted on
