What Our Patients Say About Us

  • "I was enjoying the scenery of the tree & squirrels & birds through the big window in front of me and all of a sudden my dentist was working on my teeth. I was having a pleasant experience because he numbed my mouth so he could work. He fixed everything that needed fixing & sent me on my way to go home. I haven’t ever enjoyed getting dental work done in the past. This dentist provided a pleasant experience. That really made my day."
    Nancy Parker
  • "I love every single one of you at Buttercup Dental. It’s evident that you genuinely care about your patients. Dr Smith is a very compassionate Dr and he cares and wants to inform his patients of the TRUTH not what they want to hear. I love this most of all!!"
    Kristal Pendleton
  • "If you are looking for a perfect dental team, this is it! The whole experience was just great. Dr. Steven Stancey was able to fit me in the last second. I was in a lot of pain and very afraid to go in, but everyone there really made me feel at ease. The staff there was also so amazing! Hands down the best!"
