“Dr. Petrie and his staff have done an incredible job so far with my Invisalign®. I have appointments with them almost every month and have enjoyed the experience each time. The staff is so kind and really gets to know you. They don’t just sit you down in the waiting room until they are ready to see you. They ask how you’re doing, how’s school, work, and so on. Not only that, but Dr. Petrie has a great sense of humor, along with many of his staff members. He makes you feel very comfortable the second you sit down in the chair. The biggest problem I faced with previous dentists was that they were too rough. Dr. Petrie on the other hand is very gentle, and asks every few minutes if there is anything bothering you, which makes you feel a lot more comfortable. Along with that, everyone knows it’s annoying when the dentist has his hands in your mouth and is trying to have a conversation with you. Dr. Petrie and his staff will have a conversation with you but ask you questions that you can answer with a yes or no. It makes the experience much less awkward. Overall, my experience at Petrie Advanced Dental has been great each time, and I actually look forward to each of my visits. I constantly recommend them to many family members and friends. They are great!”

“I had the same dentist from as early as I can remember, and a few years ago he decided to retire. Even though Dr. Petrie is a little more of a drive for me, I had heard good things from my friends, so I made the switch. I didn’t realize what I was missing being with the same dentist for so long. My teeth have never felt as clean as after six-month cleanings with Hollie! I had two cavities filled about a year ago, as well, and the process was painless. No complications and I was in and out of the office in about 45 minutes. Dr. Petrie is a true wizard with the drill. I recommend Petrie Advanced Dental to all my friends and family because I can guarantee they will be taken care of and get great service.”

“Dr. Petrie is an amazing dentist and has a very good touch. He did a few fillings and a crown for me along with general dentistry, and I have never felt any pain in the process. He is very gentle and has a good heart as well. I would highly recommend him for any type of dentistry for anybody.”

I have been in the care of Dr. Petrie several times over the past years. He placed a crown on a very challenging tooth and also performed a root canal on a severely abscessed tooth that needed attention long before I went to see him. Dr. Petrie and his staff proved to be excellent care providers, with a special emphasis on patient needs. I would go out of my way to recommend Dr. Petrie to any individual or family looking for a dentist with the highest of standards.

“When I heard the previous dentist retired and there was a new dentist coming in to replace him, I was a little apprehensive. Dr. Petrie is a breath of fresh air. The girls from the previous dentist stayed on to work for Dr. Petrie. This dentist is very kind, very good, very professional and knows what he’s doing. I look forward to going into this dentist. He is extremely knowledgeable and has suggestions to help with any dental problem a person might have. He is not a pushy dentist trying to make a patient have things done when it’s not really necessary. He will give suggestions, but lets a patient decide for themselves whether they want to go ahead. A very gentle dentist. The atmosphere is very happy in this office. My grandfather was a dentist, so I am well aware of the practice of dentistry.”

“My visits at Petrie Advanced Dental have always been great! The staff is wonderful! They are friendly and happy and always make me feel important and as though I’m more than just a patient; more like I’m part of the Petrie Advanced Dental family. The professionalism continues throughout the office. Dr. Petrie is extremely caring and funny, and besides being the best dentist I’ve ever gone to, he always made sure I was comfortable and felt no pain. He is personable and professional. I could tell I was just as important to him as my teeth were. He always made sure to explain everything that was going on with my teeth and what he would be doing. He takes time to listen to my concerns and answers all of my questions. He is very gentle, and completely rid me of any anxiety that going to the dentist used to bring me. My teeth are very well taken care of and the cleanings are seriously superb! I highly recommend Dr. Petrie. His office is also very nice and clean. He and his staff are a pleasure to see. They make going to the dentist fun.”

“Everyone is so kind and professional at Dr. Petrie’s office. I never feel like I have a favorite assistant. They are all so great and the front desk is helpful and always remembers me.”

“WOOOOWWWW! What a beautiful space for a beautiful team. Everybody there is so friendly and kind. Once I walked in I saw how clean and neat it was. They have coffee and snacks waiting for you in the waiting room. I was helped right away and the waiting time was little to nothing. They don’t waste your time, they get right to the point. They make you feel like you’re number one. The atmosphere there is comforting. I would recommended Petrie Advanced Dental to anyone and everyone. I am definitely coming back and will be for a life time.”
