Our Reviews

"Dr. Blackwell is a great dentist and I would highly recommend him and his staff for your dental needs."

"My whole family has been coming to Dr. Blackwell for several years now and we've always received great service. The front desk gets me squared away and the hygienist's take good care of us. Dr. Blackwell will tell you the truth and get it done right for a good price. It's a relief to have a dependable service."

I (and my family) have been seeing Dr Blackwell for over 20 years, I can not sing enough praises for Dr Blackwell and his staff. They do not over sell you like many of the chains do, Dr Blackwell is always upfront about what I need and more importantly, what I don't. It is true that at times it can take a little bit of time to get in, but to know that you are treated well and not oversold, its worth the wait for me.
