What Our Patients Say

Dental procedures used to scare the living daylights out of me. I’ve cried a few times while having my teeth worked on, and it’s embarrassing! A friend told me about Dr. Cutbirth and how I should give him a try. I reluctantly went and I am SOOOOOOO glad I did! He handled my cavities and I honestly didn’t feel anything. He explained everything each step of the way and I was calm the whole time. Great experience!

I’ll admit that I’m not the most careful person when it comes to oral hygiene, but I do brush and use mouthwash regularly, so I was surprised when I found out I had 3 cavities…I got ready to hear a “sales pitch” about all the different dental treatments I was going to need and how much it was going to cost… But that’s not the kind of dentist that Dr. Cutbirth is. He really wants to help his patients take care of their teeth.

I’ve always been embarrassed by my smile. My parents didn’t have a lot of money when I was growing up, so dental care was not on their priority list. I went to see Dr. Cutbirth and was expecting to be told that it would take years to fix my teeth and that it would also be very painful. Not at all. Dr. Cutbirth patiently went over with me all the points that needed to be addressed and gave me an accurate estimation of how long it would take to handle.

My husband has never really been a person to go to the dentist. He had a bad experience when he was young and never went back. I expected him to come back complaining about the visit and saying that he would never go again. Quite the opposite. He was telling me how I was right, and how it wasn’t bad at all. Thank-you Dr. Cutbirth for giving him such great care!
