I have had an abnormal fear of the dentist all my life which led to sever gum disease and I was terrified of what I needed to have done. Dr. Thurm took his time to explain everything that had to be done and he treated me with such kindness and care it was wonderful. I had extractions done, scaling and filings under anesthesia so I did not have to hear or feel what he was doing. I woke up and Dr. T…

Excellent dentist and staff. Seen on time. State of the art equipment and most importantly, correct and good treatment with a conservative approach. Dr. Thurm’s approach is to assess the situation, range of options, whether the treatment is urgent or can wait and proceed from there. Everybody in this facility is both professional and friendly. I wish all businesses were like this.

I’ve had a life long fear of the dentist for as long as I can remember and as a result neglected my teeth . Then I found Dr Thurm and staff . I have absolutely no anxiety about going to see him . He’s done all my work for me and it’s all been great . Being able to smile with confidence and not hide my teeth in shame has been life changing . I can’t say enough !

I have an absolutely devastating fear of dentists, and had it not been for excruciating tooth pain, I was content to not visit a dental office. My first visit, while in such pain, was probably the most gentle experience I’ve had with a dental office. The staff was definitely sympathetic to my fear, and instead of treating it dismissively or by treating me like a child, they truly made me fee…
