"I am really thankful to have found Horizon Dental. I had my first appointment with them yesterday and can’t say enough good things about them! I’m one of those “afraid of the dentist” people, but Horizon may have cured that. Everyone was so friendly, calming, and knowledgeable. My hygienist, Ashley, was especially great! I highly recommend Horizon Dental!"
- Jenny P.
"Horizon Dental is absolutely amazing! I needed a deep cleaning and my hygienist was the best, I forgot to ask her name but she was very personable and keep a fun conversation throughout the entire process. The cleaning didn’t hurt at all and Dr. Dan was super nice and friendly but I really took note of how he treated his staff."
- Sheryl M.
"The entire experience was very good. The staff was professional and friendly and knowledgeable. I had a very serious issue that was taken care of but they worked so smoothly that it really felt more like a normal everyday procedure. I highly recommend this practice."
- Yolanda G.

"A fantastic experience! The entire staff were very cheerful, making what is normally a nerve-racking experience for most a pleasant one. The work done is fast, efficient, and honestly entertaining. I will definitely be back regularly and honestly hope other dental teams follow in the footsteps of this very modern, very relaxing model."
- Stephen V.
"Dr. Dan and staff did a great job making me feel comfortable. I appreciate that they don't make you wait around, when you have an appointment, you go right on in at that time. I love the setup. You can watch TV on the ceiling to keep your mind occupied and at ease during your procedure. Dr. Dan and his team are always pleasant and professional. I could not have asked for a better experience at the dentist and have recommended Dr. Dan to a few friends who have experienced the same."
