  • "Best dentist I have ever been to! He called me on a Sunday to check & see how one of my surgeries went. Dentists like him are few & far between. He really is a phenomenal Dentist!"
    Kirk K.
  • "Friendly and very knowledgeable staff, state of the art equipment. Explains all the course of actions available for your dental care and which is best suited to your circumstances. If you have any emergency dental issues,Dr. Hoffman will always find time to see you. A broken tooth and severe pain a few years back and no dentists besides Dr. Hoffman would see me. I was fit in the schedule the following day and I was not a patient at the time. My own dentist office told me 3 weeks even after I explained the pain. Needless to say, Dr. Hofmann is now my dentist."
    Gary E.
  • "Amazing dentist! His entire staff is great! Had awful experience at a previous dentist that left me scared to ever go to another. Went to dr hoffman with several broken teeth and needing a root canal. He took care of everything, making me feel at ease the entire time. Finally have my smile back thanks to dr Hoffman and his staff!"
