What Our Clients Say About Us

  • "We have been clients/friends with Dr. Pegg and her staff for more than 20 years. She is a great dentist and her entire staff are also great. Very professional and friendly. One of the first things we noticed when we started is the cleanliness of her office. We have recommended her to several people through the years. We recently moved and now have about 1 1/2 to 2 hour drive to get here and will continue to use her as our dentist."
    Cathy D.
  • "I have been going to this dentistry for over ten years now. Now, I have a history of dental care due to a cleft palette so when I say that they have provided the best and most understanding care that I have ever received, I mean that. You will become a part of the family. Great equipment, great people, cannot recommend them more."
    Joseph O.
  • "Dr Vanek is the most competent, caring and kindest dentist that I have visited. For many years I went from one dentist to another only to have issues with their care. I finally made an appointment with Dr Vanek and have now been seeing her for over 25 years. If you are uncomfortable going to the dentist and have been less than pleased with your dentist, give Dr Vanek a call."
    Lance N.
