I saw Dr. Petersen after my long-time dentist retired. I was impressed with Dr. Petersen and his helpful and friendly staff. The facility is easy to get to with plenty of parking, and I loved having a window to look out when in the dental chair.I was also impressed with the way the plan for procedure and costs were given to you immediately, so you knew what to expect as far as the expense. I was also seen in a timely manner, which was the biggest asset to this practice. I left knowing this was the dental office I wanted to come back to.

Very Professional staff , kept me informed of each procedure, made feel at ease ( as I usually am very nervous about the dentist ). All were friendly , not only understanding my nervousness, and knew how to assist me in feeling relaxed. I would highly recommend this dentist ( and suggest the staff get a raise)(lol). ,
