Patient Testimonials

My experience with Dr. Dilger has been wonderful. I'm someone who gets anxious at times getting my mouth worked on, especially the shots. With Dr. Dilger, I have learned to be very relaxed because every shot that I've received, I barely feel. Before working on my teeth, he and his staff always make sure I'm comfortable which helps a lot as well. I'm very happy with my experience at Dr. Dilger's office.
