Tooth Extraction After Care
"Prior to my becoming a patient of Dr. Neff,  I had been told by other Dentists that I would lose my teeth because they were in very bad shape.  Several years ago I came to Dr. Neff and he has taken very good care of me.  I followed his recommendations on work that needed to be done.   I kept up with my regular dental checkups and I also followed his advice in taking care of my teeth at home.  As a result, I have been able to keep my teeth in good health.  During this time, I have also found Dr. Neff to be honest and very reasonable in his pricing."

"I have been a patient of Dr. Neff for many years.  Dr. Neff always makes me feel comfortable and at ease.  He answers all my questions clearly.  He made me a beautiful upper denture 15 years ago and I have never had any problems with it.  I would recommend Dr. Neff to anyone looking for a skilled and honest Dentist. "

We welcome and appreciate the feedback of our patients.  We recognize that we would not have a practice were it not for them.


Here are some testimonials that have been submitted to us by some of our patients that we have been privileged to serve.

"I have had many good experiences regarding dental work at Dr. Neff's office. The office is very clean and the staff is very personable. It is a family owned and operated practice, which in my mind, is more comfortable than larger practices. Dr. Neff is very thorough, proficient and efficient. I would recommend Dr. Neff to anyone who is looking for a good dentist. My mother and father and I have been going to him for over 20 years. Dr. Neff and all his staff get a "thumbs up" in my book! "
