We love our patients and appreciate the feedback. Please contact our office for any questions you may have.

I went in for a routine check-up and the tech pointed out new ‘tools’ for a better clean that I was not aware of and needed. She also helped me with my questions. Dr. Grutter confirmed her comments and added more advice. These people are awesome. They work with our family to help us manage our needs and they are very professional and FUN as well! Who would use the word FUN when you describe a trip to the dentist! – Diane


Thank you so much for seeing me on such short notice, my crown literally came off as I was biting into my breakfast and still in my pajamas. Not having a dentist in this state yet I immediately drove to the first dental office I could think of but was turned away because they only see children. But they recommended you guys . And although I was not a known patient and despite being completely booked for the next week, you got me in immediately and I was in and out in about an hour. I honestly think my crown was fit better by your office than the first time it was put on. Thanks to all the super friendly staff and I’ll definitely recommend you to anyone and be sure to come back in the near future. – Brandi


The entire experience is wonderful! The front desk staff is super friendly. The assistants and technicians are very kind and caring. Dr. Grutter is a great dentist. He is very knowledgeable, patient and understanding! At a place where your comfort and well-being are key- you won’t mind “going to the dentist”! Thank you Happy Rock Team! – Abby
