I broke a tooth and found that I needed a crown. My appointment was at 1:30. I was home by 3:30. My crown was ready at 4:50. Dr. Branen stayed and made sure everything was good. What awesome service!!

P.H. (5-Star Google Review)

I’ve been a patient of Dr. Wiltshire since 1964 before he founded Lake Grove Dental, and after he retired a few years ago and Dr. Branen took the reins, I’m still a satisfied customer.
