I continue to come to Glacier Dental for my dental care. The care and consideration I receive from the Glacier staff could not be matched by any dental provider where I currently live.
Glacier Dental was helpful and painless! Incredibly kind staff and comfortable treatment!
I can’t say enough good things about the staff and the quality of care I experienced at Glacier Dental. From assessment to planning to treatment, Glacier easily ranks an 11 on a scale from one to ten! Way to go Glacier! I wouldn’t want to go anywhere else.
Truly a positive experience. I wish more establishments treated their customers like they do at Glacier. And I have to say the most gentle cleaning I’ve had.
Best dentist experience I’ve had. Very friendly and knowledgeable staff. I felt comfortable and informed the whole time. I’d recommend them to anyone.
I moved to Princeton but I still come to Glacier Dental because the staff is very friendly. I had some concerns about a dental procedure done by somebody else and only Dr. Steckbauer took the time to call me and listen to my concerns and help put me at ease.
I used to be one of the many who dreaded going to the dentist – now I actually look forward to my visits. Within minutes of walking through the door of Glacier Dental, you will be made to feel a part of the Glacier Dental family. They will do everything they can to provide you with the best care and comfort possible. I would highly recommend Glacier Dental to anyone looking for a incredibly positive dental experience.
Great staff, great place. Had a wonderful appointment, Dr. Steckbauer was not only caring but also very willing to explain anything I had questions about. The assistant was also fantastic she put me at ease and is knowledgeable about the procedure.
Polite, prompt, courteous and knowledgeable. I truly believe that I am receiving the best treatment possible by professionals that keep updated with the most appropriate current dental techniques.
