What Our Patients say

excellent review from Melyanna about basalt dentistry

Melyanna S.

Dr’s professional and outgoing attitude trickles down to the entire staff. Both hygienists I have seen for 6-month prophy appointments have been skilled and thorough, and the on minor restoration I had done by Dr was a breeze and he was able to do it without anesthetic injections– this indicates a high level of technical proficiency.

basalt dentistry raving review about the haerters

Megan B.

My family and I have been going to John and Bethany for about ten years! I truly appreciate the warm service and excellent dentistry! From the basic bi-yearly cleaning to entire mouth veneers, they have done an amazing job! I have attempted other dentists, needless to say I keep coming back to the Haerters!

raving reviews of basalt dentistry

Jessica D.

Dr. Haerter was professional but approachable and even took some time to chat with me after the exam.  They understand the value of the customer experience and it shows down to the little details.  I would recommend this practice to anyone looking for a highly skilled, professional but personable dentist practice.
