Dr. Newhart has been taking care of my teeth and gums for many, many years. He is honest, caring, and extremely competent in what he does. I am completely satisfied with the care I receive at his office.
I feel very confident that I am receiving the best dental care. You do not need to leave town for dental implants.
I love Dr. Newhart and his staff. They are all so upbeat, courteous, sweet, helpful and extremely thorough. No one likes going to the dentist but if you go here it's almost enjoyable. Almost. It is the dentist after all. 😉
