Great Staff. Professional yet friendly. And I, for the first time in a LONG time, did not feel any stress at being in the Dentist chair. Hygienist was terrific! Thank you, MT West DDS!

– Terri P.


This was my first visit, and there will be many more to follow. I had an issue with a molar, and despite never being a client I was able to get in much faster than I expected. I am terrible with names, but everyone was very polite, curious, and informative. It was very reasonably priced on top of all of that.

– Matt F.


When I went in with an emergency, they worked me in quickly, assessed my needs and made an appointment to take care of the issue within a couple of days! I am so pleased with their professionalism, friendliness, and ability to deal with dental needs. I highly recommend MT West Dentist!

I’ve been a resident in this area for 10yrs now. Today I had my final or permanent dental crowns put in. They are great looking with a perfect fit. I can’t say enough about the staff, dental assistants and the dentists that work here. Not just professional and knowledgeable in ALL that they do, but exceptionally friendly. I can highly recommend MT West Dental to anyone looking for the BEST dental specialist around. Great job!
