Reviews & Testimonials
"the hygienist took enough time to do an excellent cleaning. I appreciate the quality of care given at this office."
"Love everyone here! They are fast, efficient, kind, helpful. The best dental establishment I've been a part of!"
"I’ve been going here for a few years and have always been taken care of adequately. Yesterday I had Megan as my hygienist and was super happy with my cleaning and care, education, and personal connection. Hands down the best cleaning I’ve gotten in years."
"Always great to come home to the North Country. Always get great personal care at Family Dentistry. Never a wait and always feels like a family."
"I relocated to this area two years ago, and shortly after the move, I broke a molar that would need to be repaired with a crown. I chose Lake George Family Dentistry on the recommendation of a friend (who is a physician). Even in the midst of strict Covid precautions, the atmosphere was very reassuring. All the staff members who have taken care of me are exceptional. They possess a great blend of competence, courtesy and caring."
