What Others Are Saying

“It took just over 3 years to make this smile bright again. Thank you for taking the time at the first consult to explain my options. I had never heard of any of this before. After choosing a plan to proceed, it was a long road, but I love the work you and your ladies have done for me. The other nice thing was there was no pain. Thanks so much!”


“Dr. Erdman has been my dentist for 12 years now. He is kind, caring and professional, and willing to address emergencies, even at less than ideal times (like holidays and weekends). Dr. Erdman is always cheerful and friendly, and has never failed to greet me with a smile and enthusiastic greeting. I have recommended him to friends who have equally great experiences with him. Likewise, his staff is always friendly and professional.”
