Both her and her assistant took excellent care of me as did the Hygienist. Thanks to all.

Awesome dentists and hygienists. My complaint is with a certain front desk lady who ranted at me because I said I was tired from having a new baby. She told I had no excuse because I’ll never know what my wife went through and that women spend more time taking care of the baby than men. I get up twice a night to change and feed the baby, and I take her to appointments, daycare, and errands. I would do anything for my new daughter. I was so furious I almost cancelled my appointment and found a new dentist

I felt welcome from the first time I visited the office. All the staff members were welcoming and friendly. Dr. Ellefson was genuine in his care and was knowledgeable about the services I was looking for. He took time to explain the procedure would be done and answered all of my questions. At the time of the procedure, Angie assisted Dr. Ellefson and was kind and knowledgeable. All members of the staff were professional and genuine. I was pleased with the services received from South Dayton Family Den
