What Our Clients Say About Us

  • "Not much to say except that Dr. Pete and his staff are the very best in the business. I've been a patient for nearly 30 years and would not ever consider another dentist. I don't have a fear of dentists, but my mother-in-law did and had not seen a dentist in many, many years. When she moved back to NY from FL, she needed a lot of work. Dr. Pete and his staff took wonderful care of her and she no longer has any trepidation when she needs to go."
    Stephen Kuzma
  • "Dr. Smit is a wonderful dentist. I have been going to her since 2012. She is a very kind, caring, patient dentist. She really does an excellent job of fixing my teeth. Fillings, crowns, cosmetic bonding etc. I highly recommend Dr Smit. Her whole staff is amazing as well."
