Thank you very much! Dr. Stender and his employees are efficient. I have been a customer since I was a child. He had a accomplished dental work that has taken others hours within 45mins to 1 hour. He will have my business for many years!

I have been going to Dr. Stender for a few years now. His services are always outstanding. Wait time is very minimal and sometimes finishes earlier than expected. Will always refer people to go see Dr. Stender when they are new to the area.
Thank you Dr. Stender for trying to work with my 4 year old and his 3 little cavities. He went above and beyond to not make it a traumatic experience and eventually my little guy got it all done. Getting teeth cleaning has never been a problem but the cavities were tricky. We're definitely trying to stay on top of flossing. Thank you to Dr Stender and his team trying to help my son get thru this hurdle. Extra star if I could!!
Might just be the best dentist in the city. I e been to a few. East side. West side. Etc. The most thorough, studied doctor I have. Always has the latest solid research and technology. And all in his office are top-notch and caring. Prices are not over the top and they work with you to get the best coverage. Also expert at TMJ. I still travel 40 minutes each way for my dental visits with Dr Stender. It's worth it. Do yourself a favor and go here!
Vilma was very professional and explained everything about my teeth so that I learned how to better clean them and care for them. I actually enjoy going to the dentist because everyone at this office makes the experience enjoyable.
They do everything in one place and have all the new Technology. They start off by giving you a tour and then get introduced to Dr Stender who then sits with you to find out your issues and proceed from there.
I have been going to Dr. Stender's office for many years now. Vilma has been my hygienist. She is professional, has a super personality and makes you feel comfortable during cleanings. Everyone in the office is nice and helpful if you have questions. They will follow-up with your insurance to make sure a procedure is covered. Give their office a try.
Very patient and kind. I experienced little to no discomfort or pain during the cleaning. He is very polite and well mannered. The staff members are friendly, well trained and helpful. I would recommend Dr Stender's office to anyone looking for a great dentist.
My family and I have been going to Dr. Stender's office for over 15 years and I wouldn't go anywhere else. He has all the latest equipment and all he is very knowledgeable. All his staff are helpful and caring. I recommend him to all my friends and family.
I did a yelp search and decided to try Dr. Stender because they had the highest rating and the most reviews. Everyone at the office was very nice. They took me on a tour of the facility and place has state of the art equipment and everything you would need. The doctor was also very nice, helpful, and answered my many questions. Great place.
