Patient Testimonials


Dr. Prouse is a fabulous dentist! My family has gone to him for years. He’s a great dentist who puts up with my being a nervous patient. It never hurts and he’s always thoughtful...he always asks about my family and how we’re all doing. It’s those little things that make a big difference.

Dr. Prouse has served my Family for 25 years. He also takes care of my Parents. His staff combined with the Dr.s gentle touch makes a visit to his office like visiting an old friend. Thank you again for the excellent customer service.

I have a severe anxiety disorder, and due to a bad experience with dentists as a kid and an extremely sensitive gag reflex, I hadn't been to a dentist in 10+ years. I wish I'd known about Dr Prouse's practice before. Him and his wonderful staff have made going to the dentist a walk in the park!
