"As someone that loathes going to the dentist and having major anxiety about it I got lucky to have found Dr. Boulard and his amazing staff. From the very onset they treat you with the utmost respect and class. By the time you leave your first appointment you realize you made the right choice as they treat you like family. After the first conversation with Liz making the appointment I knew this was possibly the right place. And it was cemented the second you walk through the door and you're greeted by Liz her radiant smile and the feeling that you belong there. Easiest five star rating I've given. If there was an option for ten or fifteen stars they'd earn them all!! If you're on the fence hop over and give something to smile about a call."
"Just a shout out to Something to Smile About on dw! Dr Kevin and his staff are so friendly and reliable. I had work done recently and it was one of the easiest pain less experience I've ever had at the dentist. He's very thorough with everything he's does. Recommend 10 out of 10 if youre looking for a new dentist 🦷"
"I was fortunate enough to have had Dr Boulard help me after an accident that knocked out my front teeth. Because of the extensive damage, I scheduled a consultation with Dr Boulard expecting reconstructive surgery, and it took no more than 2 hours for him to draw up a plan and I left the office that day relieved of pain (still no teeth). After many months of work, Dr Boulard proved his skills and expertise repairing my teeth making them look better than they did before and function as well. As someone who hates going to the dentist, he made sure I was comfortable throughout each procedure. Dr Boulard has an amazing team at his side. He details as a perfectionist would, but also makes the comfort of his patients his number one priority. He was extremely accommodative with scheduling and working with my insurance."
"5 stars isn't even enough.. they deserve 10. Their compassion for their customers is so clear from the second you walk in to the second you leave. I had the biggest dental fear and it's cleared being around them. They treat you as good as you'd expect they'd treat their family. I'm so grateful i found this place."
"The dentist office has never been my favorite place to go. I finally don't dread going to the dentist after finding Something to Smile About! You are always welcomed with a smiling face and they get you in/out quickly! Will recommend them to anyone!!"
