SUCCESS STORIES

“Have no fear

When I started with a consultation to get my mouth out of pain about 2 years ago, I had no idea the transformation that was going to take place. I had such terrible anxiety and fear associated with going to the dentist. However, my first appointment with Amy went so well. She made me feel comfortable, was so gentle during the exam and calmed my fears. When it came time for a plan of action, the office staff was great with explaining costs and options. My first appointment to have work done went so well that I looked forward to my next appointment. Flash forward a year later, I am no longer in pain (that was resolved within my first appointment), my teeth are on a healthier path and I can smile with confidence. I no longer have anxiety when I go to the dentist!! Thanks to Dr. Gilbaugh, Amy Cassady, Kari and Erica Barbee for their wonderful, compassionate and transforming care. And this is why I send people to the Family Dental Center.”

 

Best dental family in the state

Our entire family goes to The Family Dental Center and have even since before the flood on 1st eve. Everyone is always friendly and helpful, they work with your insurance and financial needs, and they provide quality work. I recommend them to everyone!”

 

Excellent approach to kids!

I brought my 3 year old daughter in for her first dental exam, and she now loves the dentist. she was made to feel important by all the staff from the minute we walked in the door. The receptionist greeted her specifically, recognizing her as a patient, not just my accessory. The hygienist and the dentist approached her slowly, explaining everything to her, showed her how stuff worked and didn’t push when she seemed hesitant about anything. the result was my daughter letting them poke at her teeth with all the scary sharp metal implements with absolutely no crying. It was amazing. I’d recommend to everyone.”

 

Timely, Through, Efficient, Friendly Services

I was crunched for time and called to try and schedule a check-up and cleaning as a new patient… they squeezed me in the same day!!! I arrived for my appointment and within 5 minutes of filling out the requisite paperwork I was taken back for my cleaning. Amy J. was very friendly and extremely gentle yet through…the best cleaning I have ever had! Since I was a new patient the appointment took a little longer but I never felt rushed. Dr. G was great the day of my checkup and the next day when I came back for a filling. This is a superb dental practice and I would recommend to anyone! Thanks for getting me in on short notice!”

 

“Continued excellence

We arrived on time, were seen almost immediately. Staff were pleasant. All questions were answered with care and patience. We continue to find The Family Dental Center the perfect place for the dental needs of our family of five.”

 

“Would highly recommend!

Wonderful experience and very professional and knowledgeable staff! I would highly recommend Dr. David Guliano. He did a great job on my filling and made me feel very comfortable! The clinic is beautiful and spacious!”

 

“A great 1st visit for my small child

The dental hygienist did an excellent job making my 2 1/2 year old comfortable during her entire 1st dental visit! I was very surprised that she and Dr. Chad were able to clean, floss and check her teeth without any tears, or even one complaint! They explained what they were doing every step of the way. She said she had fun and can’t wait to go back! Way to go!”

 

“Friendly service and professional staff

I had a great experience with The Family Dental Center today as a new patient. The clinic came highly recommended to me by a friend and I can see why! The staff was friendly and very informative – great bedside manner and patient education. I’ve never been so excited to go to the dentist!”
“When I got home from my visit to The Family Dental Center, I looked carefully at the elegant composite which Chad and Whitney had crafted on my incisor and recognized what a totally fabulous service I had received. I applaud you for yet another experience of genuine beaming smiles, informative and efficient prep, and artful craftsmanship. To round out my experience, I think it was Pam who warmly checked me in at the front desk and processed my checkout at the back.

I recognize that dental visits may not always go this smoothly but want to encourage your success with my sincere appreciation. Thank you!”

“I have received my dental care from Dr. Greg Gilbaugh at The Family Dental Center since 1986. Before he was recommended to me, I avoided dental care because of my fear of pain. This resulted in multiple dental issues. Dr. Gilbaugh, his dental assistants and his hygienists do an excellent job explaining procedures and keeping you comfortable.

The office staff have been very helpful also. One example of caring is after I fell and damaged my four upper front teeth I had to go to the office in an ice storm. Dr. Gilbaugh and three assistants came to the car putting down salt and walked me into the office. This resulted in a very nicely repaired mouth. I highly recommend The Family Dental Center.”

“I was considered a teeth grinder, partly by heredity and partly by profession. After consulting my local dentist, he suggested breaking my jaw to reset the bite and then capping all of my teeth. This would last me about 5-7 years and then may have to be repeated. I did not want to go through this multiple times. So, in May of 1999, I came to The Family Dental Center. For 10 years Dr. Greg was able to do a small amount of work to preserve what I had before the inevitability of having to do major work.”

In June of 2011, Dr. Greg Gilbaugh and his Family Dental staff began the reconstruction work without breaking my jaw. I had crowns and bridges put in place and the procedure was finished by September 2011. My wife says I have the smile back that I had when she first met me and that includes a full set of wonderful teeth. I have The Family Dental Center to thank for this restoration. The staff is professional, compassionate, caring and treated me like family!

Before this, I never realized what an impact my teeth had on my whole physical well-being. Therefore, I highly suggest contacting The Family Dental Center.”

“Our family has been with The Family Dental Center for 22 years. Dr. Gilbaugh, Dr. Stultz, and Dr. Hanneman and their staff have given the very best care to us all. The atmosphere is warm and welcoming, and patients are treated with respect and genuine care. Everyone works together to make the experience friendly, professional, and comfortable. The dental office is beautiful, and the dental care is excellent. ‘Going to the dentist’ at the Family Dental Center is a pleasure!”

“I have been a patient of Dr. Gilbaugh for years and more recently have been a patient of Dr. Stultz. I have received nothing but excellent care from both. The entire staff at The Family Dental Center know me by name when I walk in and everyone is extremely friendly and welcoming. I would highly recommend both Dr. Gilbaugh and Dr. Stultz to any of my friends or family.”
