"This is the real deal - One visit crowns! Dr. Whalen's team is a well-oiled machine with the latest dental technology. I was referred by a coworker and as a new patient, check-in only took 2 minutes. (I didn't have to sit down with a clipboard full of paper to fill out.) Toni, my hygienist was polite, thorough and very efficient. I have a strong gag reflex, but she did this trick and the reflex just went away. I needed crowns which in most offices means 2 visits per crown, but Dr. Whalen can design and make the permanent crowns in his office while you are in the chair. This office knows how to treat patients. Be sure to tell Kelly you want to say Hi to Beamer!"

– John B. –

"Thorough, knowledge and they take time with you. As always, Toni is amazing!! Thank you. Dr. Whalen always takes time to do a thorough exam and chat."

– Michael J. –

"I’m a huuuuuuuuuge baby when it comes to the dentist. Chest tightness, sweating, shaky, etc all due to a horrible experience at the dentist a long time ago. However, these folks made me feel at ease and were all around insanely nice. From the time I made the appointment to the time I walked out of the office, everyone was so welcoming and made me feel like they truly appreciated my business. I was even thanked a couple of times for making an appointment there. Their availability, kindness, compassion and professionalism have me hooked. Little to no wait, Toni was very gentle and put me at ease. Dr. Whalen was very professional, genuine, gentle and all around a great dude! I’ll definitely be coming back in six months for my next cleaning. Hands down the best dental experience ever!!! Go see Dr. Whalen folks!!!"

– Katie M. –

"Every time I come to Whalen Dentistry, I am greeted by the friendliest faces and seen on-time for my appointment. Every member of the staff I’ve met is open and engaging but professional and thorough. I highly recommend this practice to anyone in need of dental care."

– Julie F. –

"Dr. Whalen and his team are friendly and professional - every time I'm there. Today I had questions about the need for a certain procedure and Dr. Whalen took the time to show me pictures and explain everything in detail. They never keep me waiting long (if at all). I would 100% recommend them! They also treat my young children and Dr. Whalen is very good with them."

– Chasty U. –

"Excellent patient service. They were all very professional and also friendly. Dr. Whalen explained all the things he thought I needed to be able to keep my teeth healthy for a long time but never made me feel pressured to get of the work done. Definitely an exceptional experience!"

– Reta –

"For someone who is petrified of dentists, Dr. Whalen was very patient. He explained what he was doing as he went. He extracted a tooth in very short time. I was in and out of his office quickly."

– Jane –

"I have gone to Dr. Whalen for several years for everything from check ups/cleanings to having wisdom teeth extracted. And I am happy to recommend him anyone searching for an excellent dentist. And the professionalism and courteousness extends through the entire staff! A great organization of people!"

– Douglas –

"The staff were more than pleasant and took a gentle approach to a situation in which I do not feel very comfortable. The exam was extremely thorough and their conclusions were expressed very clearly and helpfully. I had the sense that they wanted to be sure that I felt a part of the decision-making process regarding any future procedures that may need to be done."

– Thomas –

"I am very pleased in every aspect of my visit to Whalen Dentistry, from the moment I called to make my appointment to finishing up my visit with a new crown. Definitely Whalen Dentistry was a good choice as I transitioned into my new community!"
