    I love going to Alpine Dental. They are always running on time and are very efficient with appointments. The staff is so friendly and helpful with everything I need. I especially love Britt, she is definitely the best hygienist I’ve had! Highly recommend Alpine Dental.

    I sincerely enjoy Alpine Dental. It probably helps that I brush and floss daily 🙂 but they are professional and friendly. It is a warm, comfortable environment where I get all my questions answered and of course great dental care. Dr Lever is great as is my Hygienist Brittany. Thanks to both of them and the front desk staff for a first class experience. I highly recommend Alpine Dental. Thanks!!

    Very thoughtful with their precautions during this pandemic. As always, staff has been top of the line, friendly, personable - they don't feel like strangers at all like I was used to with other dentist offices. I love the appointment reminder texts as well.

    The best dental care my family and I have ever received. Which would explain why we’ve been going to Alpine Dental for the last fourteen years. In addition to giving such great care, they have the latest equipment/technology and the best staff EVER. You’ll never want to go anywhere else. 🙂
