Jeff & Linda Annis Review: Had a great experience at Dr. Stranik's new office. Linda loved the new method of cleaning teeth with the "power washer" - not so much scraping! Jeff was disappointed he didn't get a new tooth brush, floss and tooth paste.

Dr Kack is great i wish she was staying. Getting tired of a different dentist every 6 months i wish this would stabilize

I had a good cleaning and a report that all looks good right now. Every time I go in, the staff reiterates about the importance of brushing, flossing and strong mouth wash, to make sure that I am following through. That's a good thing----to be reminded how importance maintenance is!

Had a wonderful experience. Dr. Kack and the staff are wonderful and very attentive and caring. They listened to my needs and concerns. Provided me with an appropriate treatment pland and made sure that services were either covered by insurace, or okay with me before doing anything.

Dr. Kack once again provided excellent care - very professional! Elizabeth is an excellent hygienist who is very attentive to my individual needs, especially given my rare autoimmune diseases.

the team was very patient with my 7 year old son, as this was his first time getting x-rays and a general cleaning.

It seems every time I have a scheduled appt, different assistants have something different to say about my teeth. From water picks to ways to floss to mouth washes... even though it can be helpful I get confused by it.
