Testimonials

"Katie, Rachel, and Felicia and the whole office staff are fantabulous and everyone is helpful, especially with my medical issues. I would have liked to have a dentist her every day of the week but that's changed. Dr. Jay is the best!! When he thought that my dental journey was finally over, he bought me red roses. What doctor does that? five stars

Diane C

"I have been going to Setlur Dental for 28 years. I have RIDICULOUS dental fear. However, the receptionist, hygienists, and dentist are unbelievably professional, friendly and even entertaining with their down to earth and comical personalities.
They recently hired a new dentist, Dr. C.... ,she is awesome. She believes that dentistry should be pain free (who would have thought) and makes sure her patients are comfortable and truly delivers on her no pain motto.
Setlur Dental office is definitely a place for children and adults, I highly recommend this dental office."

Maria W

"I have been a patient my whole life (23 years). I've always received outstanding care, nothing less. I've never had any dental issues, no cavities, etc. This is because my dental hygienist (Krissy) and dentist Dr. Setlur, may he rest in peace, have always taken great care of my teeth. I know that I am still in great hands with Dr. Jay. I appreciate them so much for taking great care of not only me but also my family. They've always gone above and beyond to make sure my teeth stay healthy! "
