Professional and quick.
I was very pleased with the work. I don’t like work on my teeth but this was such an easy appointment. Thank you for the great work.

The follow-up definitive therapy perio exam and evaluation were very thorough and encouraging!! The scheduled cleaning and a few laser treatments were high level professional and well done!! Goal of new level of daily dental hygiene for myself–combined with professional hygienist care on a regular basis–is to maintain and possibly even improve on the results of today’s exam!!! Thank You Alisha (And The Staff at CCFDC)!!!

Caring and friendly service.
Everyone seems cheerful and friendly and helpful. They work at “serving”and do a good job both serving and in the services they provide. Today I got my teeth cleaned. I like it that Kelly keeps me informed about my teeth and gums and whether they are improving. She offered helpful advice and encouragement.

Where You Are Treated Like Family!
Clay Center Family Dental Care has been my wife’s dentist, while I continued to go to the dental practice that I had been with for years. Recently, I had a dental emergency & my dentist was unavailable. I was experiencing a great deal of pain & did not wish to wait several days. Much to my relief, Clay Center Family Dental Care set up an appointment for me immediately. I saw Dr. Harness & was very impressed with how she explained my situation & what my options were. We were leaving on a trip that had been planned for months & her good work kept our vacation from being a disaster. The entire staff at Clay Center Family Dental Care are friendly & make you feel as if you are family. I just had my six month check up & cleaning. I was very impressed with my hygienist’s professionalism. It made for a more pleasant experience than some of my past cleanings. The staff was very accommodating in arranging our next check up & cleaning on a date that works well for my wife & I to come on the same day. That is much appreciated since we are driving 80+ miles one way from home for our dental visits. Our being willing to do that should speak volumes of our satisfaction with Clay Center Family Dental Care!

The best Dental service I have ever had.
From the first contact with the receptionist and through the services provided by Dr Harness and her staff, I was given a complete exam, xrays, cleaning and recommendations for future treatment. I was concerned, as I have had some bad experiences from dental work received from the 1950 and 1960 era. The manner of concern and treatment that I received turned a dreaded visit to the dentist into one of appreciation for me. I would recommend their office to anyone. Thank you for your great work.

Great Service and Professional.
I appreciate the state of the art equipment, organization, friendliness and professionalism of the staff. Would definitely recommend them to anyone!
I used to be afraid to go to a dentist. These wonderful people are so caring that I now look forward to my appts.
Every way you look at it, dental implants are a better solution to the problem of missing teeth. While high-tech in nature, dental implants are actually more tooth-saving than traditional bridgework, since implants do not rely on neighboring teeth for support.
