"What an amazing experience!"
"I'm so grateful for Dr. Porter and his staff. I recently has a routine cleaning just a few days prior to my wedding and they thought my wedding pictures would look nicer with whiter teeth. Since i had been a long time patient Dr. Porter made me a custom whitening tray at no cost and only had to pay for the whitening solution."
"I have used Dr Porter for over 17 years. He is an outstanding dentist you can trust. My first visit to him was because I was told by a different dentist I had seven cavities. Dr Porter told me I had beautiful teeth and no cavities. I would not see anyone else."
"Great dentist - I have been a patient of Dr. Porter for many years and have had nothing but great experiences. Between him and his staff they have always been personable, professional, and thorough."
"Dr. Porter has been our families dentist for more than 10 years. Between him and his dental hygienist Nancy they provide an outstanding experience. Whether you need a simple cleaning, teeth whitening or a cavity filled I would recommend him."
