Michelsen Dental is a very well run dental practice. They really treat you very well, giving you great individualized care and making you feel apart of their family. They also have a great front office that give you up-front costs and work with you and insurance companies to come up with good payment plans and options. Dr. Michelsen and her team have helped me with cleanings, cavity fillings, and even Invisalign teeth alignment. I highly recommend.

Have been coming here for years and wouldn’t consider going anywhere else. Great dental care and wonderful staff throughout the entire office. They’re like family!

Dr. Michelson is an amazing dentist. I had an old crown that was cracked. No temporary required…She made a new crown and I was out with no pain within 2 hours. Just went after the office re-opened due to the COV-19 for my cleaning and check up. No issues. Staff is very helpful and always open to discussion on options…

Update: I just got my first set of Clear Correct braces! Process was super easy! I am so excited to be with Michelsen Dental! Staff is amazing and helpful! Office is very responsible with COVID procedures.
Friendly and welcoming! Always a pleasant experience. All staff is helpful and informational.

Came here today as a new patient, everything went amazing. From the hygienist to cleaned my teeth, to Dr. Michelsen who did my exam. I’m starting Invisalign with them and I am so excited. Thank you to Leslie the office manager who helped me today, she really helped me out. To Liz who’s so sweet and took extra care of me, and Nadia the assistant who took my X-rays. I definitely will recommend this office to my friends and family.

I’ve been seeing Dr. Michelsen for several years and always have a great experience. Office staff is welcoming and helpful. My kids aren’t afraid when I mention that it’s time for their checkups! They have all state of the art equipment and are professional.
I had a crown fall apart on a Friday evening, emailed the office in a panic thinking it was a long shot that I would get a response before the following Monday. To my great surprise and relief, Dr. Michelsen called me within 10 minutes of my sending the email that night! I really appreciated that!

Dr. Michelsen and her staff were extremely efficient, friendly, and overall worked great together as a team. I have been coming to this office for almost 30 years now, and I will continue coming for the next 30+ years.

I have recently been searching for a new dentist since I moved away from the last location and I am happy to make Michelsen Dental my new dental home. Not only is Dr. Michelsen super sweet and thorough, but so is her staff Liz and Leslie . They are prompt with call backs and are great with any questions that are asked. They are genuinely kind and everyone will advocate for your dental health. Definitely a place to try if you are looking to find a thorough dentist with a great team to back her.

I’ve been procrastinating on going to the dentist for a few years because I was nervous of what I might need. But after visiting with Dr. Michelsen, I found that I was worried for no reason at all. She and her staff are kind, patient, and gentle! I’m smiling because, not only are my teeth nice and healthy again, I also got my smile brightened. It looks better than I thought possible…and makes me feel happy about myself again.

Dr. Michelsen is a very professional, caring and considerate dentist which puts the dental health of her patients above all else. Her office will not try to upsell you on services that aren’t needed like other dental offices. Her office staff mirrors her professionalism and friendliness.

Very helpful and friendly staff. I love that they make your crown right there and you don’t have to have a temporary tooth and wait for the permanent tooth.
