Meet the Team
Our patients say.
"Gardner Dental has such a positive environment. All of the employees are super nice and have great personalities. I just had a dental checkup and cleaning and everything was so smooth and efficient. Something else that has impressed me with them is the education they provide to their clients."
"Everyone at Gardner Dental is so nice. They really make you feel comfortable and check to make sure you are ok during the appointment. Dr. Gardner is great! He explains everything and makes sure you understand if there are options. I also appreciate that I never wait long when I arrive for my appointment."
"The dental assistants are always very kind and skilled. During x-rays, I ask for a cover over my throat to protect from possible thyroid cancer someday and they always get the extra piece of covering and put it over my neck. They are very skilled at doing the cleaning, the flossing, the rinsing, the scraping, the raking of x-rays, the examine and the whole process. Dr. Gardner is always patient, friendly, knowledgeable, and skilled. I just enjoy the whole staff like they are my long-time friends."

"Braidyn was extremely prompt and helpful. I was very surprised how quick she responded at 7:30 at night when I texted what I thought was maybe only a number they used to send out appointment reminders. I appreciated the fact that she was working late and understand how few appreciate the time you miss from your family and friends when working nights. Thank you Braidyn!"
