"Dr Dave Brust has been our family’s dentist for 20 years - the best dentist I’ve ever had (and I lived in LA for 10 years, which supposedly has a good selection of dental professionals). Terrific hygienists, friendly, caring clinic staff, beautiful, warm office. HDC puts the P in Professional!"
"1st visit was excellent. They had my records from my out of state dentist and picked up where prior dentist was in the yearly 2x visit per year. Communication was very good."
"I strongly recommend Dr. Brust. He and his assistant do everything to make sure I’m comfortable and I always trust their diagnosis."
"Fast service, returned easily for filling. On time, friendly and appropriate the care."
"I have been going there 25 plus years and they have always had taken Great care of me and my teeth."
"Amazing staff. Positive environment. Above and beyond perfect."
"Professional and family oriented business. The hygienist was very kind and easy to talk to. She understood and listen to my needs and did a thoroughly cleaning of my teeth."
"Julie has been my hygienist for 40+ years I will miss her, she's been great. Dr. Buck and his father before him have always been so nice, professional and most importantly they make sure your comfortable. Dr. Buck always makes sure you don't feel anything if your getting any work done, which I appreciate. I guess I'm wimpy when it comes to pain in my mouth."
"Where to begin? Dr. Brust has been my dentist for almost 30 years now! Him and his assistant make the best team. Absolutely enjoy my visits to Heritage Dental. I feel as if I were part of the team and not a costumer when I go in. My daughter’s absolutely love going to get their teeth polished as well!! Hygienist Ana and Bobbi do an excellent job taking care of my girls! I don’t think I could ever switch dental offices. Thank you for all you do at Heritage Dental!"
