What Do Our Clients Say?

You don’t have to take our word for the quality of care we provide. Our clients do the talking on Google Reviews.

I had quite a few issues with my teeth and Dr. Butts did a great job in taking care of them. I am a “chicken” when it comes to going to a dentist and he is very considerate of that fact. His dental hygienist is gentle and has given me very helpful tips in keeping gums healthy and teeth clean.

I love everyone there! They are always on time and get me in and out quickly while never making me feel rushed. He is thorough and down to earth. They work with my schedule and in my life means a lot. Totally recommend!!!

Haley Foster

I had really never been to the dentist before except to have extractions. I was raised that you get older and you get all your teeth pulled and get dentures. Well when it had become time to get dentures I didn’t want to, I wanted to keep my teeth. I went to Wellspring Dental and they were so wonderful to me, the whole staff is welcoming , knowledgeable and very good at what they do. The transformation of my teeth is remarkable and now I’m not embarrassed to smile anymore. So if you are looking at this review to see if you want to go there, call them now and book that appointment you will not regret it!

Nettie Berry

I was a new patient, with an issue with an implant. I called the office hoping to get an appointment within the next few weeks. I chose this practice because of Dr. Butt’s excellent credentials. The receptionist (Catherine) arranged for me to be seen the same afternoon since Dr. Butts would be out of town for the next week. Before I left the office, I had met every person who works there, they all knew me by name and they worked together like a well oiled machine to respond to my issue. It is such a pleasure to know that this practice is available in our community. Great care, great people, great provider! I have absolutely no reservations in recommending this practice!
