I've been coming to Dr. Bothwell my entire life, and I have to say, he and his dental assistants are as good as I could ever hope for. They're attentive, know exactly what they're doing and what they're talking about, and I always leave knowing they've done a fantastic job cleaning my teeth and do a full examination every time, taking no shortcuts. They're also great with scheduling; they know I'm a student and take the time to try and be as flexible with getting me an appointment for my next cleaning as they could possibly ever be. I won't trust anyone else with my choppers. Professional, cheery, and positive are what everyone working here always are.

Great Dentist. Gentle, carefull to explain what needs to be done, careful to explain insurance options. I sent my daughter to him and he caught a diagnosis that another, much more expensive dentist missed. Great guy in general.
He does do emergencies, I think as once or twice I have been bumped when I came in for a cleaning, And frankly, I think that is a good thing. He does for the person in worse shape - and if I were in that circumstance, that is exactly how I would hope to be treated.
Cannot recommend this guy too highly.

And Kelly - his assistant is great as well - always ready with a smile and a cheery disposition.

I have a titanium-steel post 1 5/8" deep in my skull anchoring a false front tooth. It looks fantastic and will outlast ME. Getting the dead tooth pulled, the bone treated, and the new one it put in was HELL ON EARTH...except for the parts that Dr. Bothwell did.

He is, quite frankly, the best in the business. If you need an oral surgeon, this is the best option and the only person I will go to.

My initial visit to Dr. Bothwells' office was great. All the staff members greet you with a smile and are ready to answer all your questions. Most of his staff members have been with him for many, many years. That alone has to stand for something.
