Smashing reviews from our patients

Over 10,000 5-star reviews and counting...

One of the best dentists I’ve ever been to. I’ve struggled with teeth sensitivity for years and no dentist has been able to help me. As soon as I saw my dentist at Swish he was able to diagnose my issue and schedule me for a follow up appointment.

Camille C.

The clinic and equipment are great. The staff is very nice and friendly and explained every step of the process. After I was done with the dental cleaning, they already reached my insurance company and summarized the pricing of some recommended treatments.

Joy L.

This dentist office is from the future… not only did I get X-rays but I got a 3d scan of my mouth and teeth. I could see enamel wear and the condition of my gums. I liked it so much I’m going to do Invisalign with them.

Patrick S.

Swish checks all my boxes for a dentist. My dentist had such a great bedside manner, you can tell he truly cares for his patients. On top of all of that, the location is unmatched. If you are looking for a new dentist, get your appointment set at Swish.
