"5 stars, the whole team is awesome. I’ve seen Dr. Smith and Dr. Margret! They’re awesome. Dr. Margaret is working on my braces and it’s always fun! We always cut up making my visits so much better than visits I’ve had at other dental offices in the past! Love this team! They know their patients and they work with you!"

"Just had my first appt at Highland Lakes Dental, and this dental office is amazing! Everyone was super friendly, very professional, and really took the time to listen to all of my questions and concerns. I had an awesome experience! Can’t wait to go back for my checkup. I highly recommend coming here! 12/10"

"I called just yesterday to schedule an appointment for a toothache and a well overdue teeth cleaning, and they fit me in first thing this morning! Never in a million years would I have thought I’d be writing a review stating how wonderful my trip to the dentist was…. ESPECIALLY after being told I needed a root canal and all that jazz, but here I am! What prompted me to write this review was how phenomenal Shannon and Melissa were. It seems like these days it’s hard to find good customer service that doesn’t feel forced or insincere, so after my experience today I just had to share! I will definitely be recommending Highland Lakes Dental to family and friends."
