    How was your appointment with Dr. Lofthus?

    Jun 22, 2018
    Wonderful practice. Front desk staff is very friendly and knowledgeable. I immediately felt relaxed and comfortable in the office, which is unusual for me in a dental office. Dr. Lofthus explained necessary procedures very well and thoroughly. Financial plan was flexible and fair, and any questions we had were answered honestly. Waiting time was much shorter than other offices and the staff is upbeat and professional. Dr. Lofthus completed my treatment skillfully and comfortably.
