I was recommended to go here by my aunt and I've seen Dr. Bartelli about a big problem with my teeth. They were able to get me in to start the process of fixing them just a week after I had my first appointment. They've done an amazing job and everyone there is very considerate, incredibly nice, and helpful but still at the same time professional and knowledgable. Walther Dental is by far the best dental facility I have ever been to with both care and staff, and it's nice to see that they all seem to be close knit and that they like to keep things light and poke fun at each other every now and again. It helps keep the environment and atmosphere of it all almost feel homey and family like. I would definitely recommend them to anyone whether they have more severe problems or if they are looking for a dentist to have normal checkups and cleanings with, they are truly phenomenal.
