Success Stories



"The very best. They never lecture you. Always do a good job explaining your situation and what they are doing to you. No pain."


"Great dentist that I trust for more than 15 years."


“My family has gone to the Kelliher Family Dentists for many years. They do an excellent job and really take care of you.
In addition, their entire staff are very nice and friendly.” 


"I have been a patient of the practice since my teens and have never been disappointed. They maintain a hygienic environment so there is never a doubt about safety and the equipment they use is state of the art.
The family members all seem to have inherited their father's gentle touch.
I will continue to go to Kelliher Family Dentists because I know I can trust them."


"Their primary concern is my safety and comfort, and they always take the time to address every concern of mine immediately... Every time I come here they always remember me by name and greet me as soon as I walk in the door, even if it's been months since my last appointment. They are so thoughtful and considerate. I just love this place."


"I have been going to the Kelliher's since I was a child. I feel like a part of the family when I have a visit. They have helped keep me cavity free for my entire life and are very thorough. The staff is all so nice and personable. I have never had a question go unanswered and they give me sound advice based on the latest research from conferences they attend and journals they read. Even though I moved out of the area, I still try to go home to see them rather than find a new dentist. Really, they are the best."
