This dental office is one of a kind. Dr. Baker and the staff are professional, knowledgeable, super friendly and always happy. The kids love coming and they are so eager to race up the stairs to get into the office. Dr. Baker does a wonderful job not only educating the patient but also the family to ensure we are confident and comfortable with treatment.
Dr. Baker and his staff are exceptional! Having worked in consulting for many years I recognize extra special treatment when I see it. Every detail is attended to and my daughter loves coming to her appointments. So much so that my other child now wants braces "because it is fun at Dr. Baker's office!"
Staff is super friendly, accommodating and takes time to answer all of our questions. Dr. Baker provides excellent care. So glad we found this practice!
Dr Baker was thorough and patient with our many questions, answering them fully. The office was clean and comfortable, very much up to date. Support staff was and continues to be fantastic, which is a big thing in my book. Very pleased with the response and help they gave us.
Our experience here at Hess Orthodontics has been fantastic. Both my son and daughter have been lucky enough to be under the care of Dr. Hess and his staff. From the moment we walked in the door to the end of the visit, we received excellent care.
We have been very happy with Dr. Hess and all “the girls." Every time we come in everyone is so friendly and helpful – and you can’t beat the spa services! We’ll be bringing our other son in when it’s his turn – and maybe someday my own teeth! Thanks you very much!
My experience at Hess Orthodontics has been wonderful. The staff is always friendly and Dr. Hess explains everything to his patients. Scheduling has never been a problem. I love the office décor and set up, makes the torture bearable. Thanks for everything!
Thank you so much for taking what could have been an exhausting, expensive and painful process and making it easy, affordable and (at least office visits) fun. Your games, personalities and attention to every detail has truly made the difference! I will recommend your office to everyone!
"Excellence." I believe this word sums up every aspect of Dr. Hess' practice. There are no "loose ends" in this place! The office is beautiful. The coffee bar is great. The staff is always accommodating (I think they actually love their job!). Thanks so much!
We offer a complimentary smile consultation for every new patient. During the appointment you will tour our practice, take diagnostic records including photos and x-rays, and meet with our doctors to discuss a personalized treatment plan just for you!
