Words From Our Patients

Couldn't Be Happier

Couldn't Be Happier

My husband, daughter and I have been patients of Dr. Gary Buzbee for years. We couldn't be happier. My daughter (now 8) wants to be a dentist because of her experiences at Buzbee Dental.

Caring Office

Caring Office

There could not possibly be a better organized, knowledgeable, and caring office of dentistry than Buzbee Dental. I have been a patient of Dr. Gary and his lovely assistant Patti for over thirty years; they are always a joy to visit with, and I have never received anything but the very best of dental services and their kind friendship throughout the years. Along with Gary and Patti, my sincere appreciation goes to Mitzi my dental hygienist who is always a delight to visit with as well as always receiving the very best of her expertise and care with each visit. Thank you,
Sharon K
