On a Sunday afternoon i chipped my tooth. Monday morning i called Dr Valo's ofc and explained my problem. i got an appt for that afternoon and instructions on what to do when arrived for my appt. i had my temp taken and filled out questionaire in the parking lot. wearing my mask i followed his receptionist, Cheryl, inside and waited for my appt. Dr Valo came and had me follow him back to the room where he assessed my tooth and told me what he hoped to do to fix it. he and his asistant where wearing their protection, i had goggles on, and he proceeded to work on my tooth. within about a1/2 hour the procedure was a success and it looks great. i went from chipped tooth to brand new in less than 24h; it made my day. i greatly appreciate getting in quickly, the preventative measures taken to make my visit safe for all of us, and the courtesy and friendliness of Dr Valo and his staff.

I really appreciate all the attention at Dr. Valo’s office to cleanliness & safety awareness. They did not skip a beat with meeting all the requirements for safety protocol. As always, Dr. Valo & staff make you feel at home with their relaxed approach to treatment and friendly demeanor. I wouldn’t dream of going to any other Dentist!! Thank you, Dr. Valo, Mary Beth, & Cindy!!

I took my children, ages 5 and 2.5, to this dentist for the first time today and oh my goodness! I have never felt more welcome and comfortable in a medical/dental office. Every single person that worked there was so sweet, kind and pleasant. The office was very clean, and my kids loved the toys in the waiting room. They even had a pinball machine my son was obsessed with. My kids felt comfortable, I felt comfortable, and I'm happy to have found the right dentist for our family.

Dr. Valo always takes time to listen and answer any questions or concerns you have about your teeth. Staff are super friendly and Tina is a great dental hygienist.

Dr. Valo is an artist. Photography, sculpting and free form ceramics. A teacher with patience and vision. His office is a studio which thrives because of apprentice and mentor-ship. It might sound as if I am a paid endorser? Not so. When a molar filling becomes a lustrous contoured efficient grinding tool as our Creator intended, I can only be thankful for persons who have mastered and honed their skills to set right what goes wrong. 5 stars and more/tammy

I changed my dentist to Dr. Valo by references of my friend & my daughter. Soon after I had an emergency tooth inflammation. Dr. Valo answered his cell phone as soon as I called him. He ordered prescription meds right away for me. And he took care of me as the first patient the next morning even pulling my wisdom tooth in his office! All this took only about an hour without special extra charges. I do not think anyone can find any other dentist like him in town! He is very thorough and very caring for patients. I’m so thankful for finding him as my dentist!

Tina worked on my pearly-whites 8-12-19. She did a phenomenal job.....wasn't heavy handed. Dr. Valo answered my questions and gave suggestions on how to further improve my oral health. In all of my years as a patient, I've NEVER had a negative experience! My son started seeing Dr. Valo when he was 2 maybe 3 years old. Now he feels pretty comfortable in the chair....he is now 6. My husband hated the dentist and hadn't gone in years! I convinced him to give Dr. Valo a try as "bad teeth" run in his family. He's been going for several years now and is very happy with his smile. The team has taken very good care of him between cleanings, fillings and the dreaded root canal!

I had a great time. I used to be afraid of dentists and now I can’t wait to go. They’re gentle and kind and answer all of my questions. Plus they have great prizes and healthy drinks that taste great. They care about you and accommodate to your needs. I have very sensitive eyes and always have to bring glasses to every dentist appointment because they use lights to look in my mouth the second time I came they had bought a whole case of glasses just for me so I didn’t have to bring my own. I definitely will forever go here for the rest of my life no matter where I move.
