Everyone loves Dr. Karst and his staff…. They are a wonderful, attentive, and caring group of professionals.

I am a migraine headache sufferer. In the past at my prior dentist, every time I had dental care I ended up leaving with one of my headaches. The last straw was a headache that lasted five straight days after getting a filling. My daughter is the one who referred me to Dr. Karst. Since I have started my dental care here I have needed three fillings and not one headache caused by my dental procedures!! YEA!!

Going to the dentist had never been my favorite activity, but at Dr. Karst’s office, it’s actually very pleasant. The staff is very friendly and helpful. The office is homey and comfortable. I had the most comfortable and through teeth-cleaning of my life here. Dr. Karst listened carefully to my concerns and found solutions to my TMJ-induced jaw pain. He removed my wisdom tooth so swiftly I didn’t even get a chance to get nervous. I look forward to seeing everybody when I come in. Thank you for you’re attention to detail and hard work.

I felt that everyone in this office truly cared about me. I did not feel judged or pressured on anything. I love the environment in this office. I will recommend this office to everyone I know. Even the phone call to set up my first appointment made me feel so welcomed. I have already recommended you to many of my co-workers.

The whole staff is incredible! They always make sure I am comfortable and well informed on all they are doing. Love the calm atmosphere. I am so thankful for all of your hard work and attentive natures. My whole family of six has had good experiences at your office.

As a physician, I want my patients to put their trust in me. I had struggled for a long time because my smile did not inspire that trust I was looking for. I knew it was time to get some cosmetic work done. I must say I was instantly impressed by the comforting yet elegant feel of Dr. Karst’s practice. At my first appointment, after being offered the beverage of my choice, I spoke with the doctor for about half an hour regarding all of my dental options. He showed me before and after photos as well as digital imaging of what my mouth would look like with veneers. I now have four veneers on my upper and four on my lower. All of my friends and patients constantly comment on how perfect my smile looks.
Thanks Dr. Karst!

When I came in to see the hygienist we laughed the whole time. She was personable as well as quick and thorough. She educated me on hygiene and how to keep my teeth clean and healthy. The hygienist and the staff made me feel at ease and safe. Even getting the shots was not at all uncomfortable. I have recommended your office to several other people in my business office and will continue to do so. Thank you!

I look forward to my total smile makeover when all is done. You all have made me feel at home and very well informed.

I’ve been a patient of Dr. Karst for over 20 years. I have always had excellent care and positive experiences. When my children were old enough I started to bring them to Dr. Karst as well. About six years ago a change in insurance at work forced me to switch dentists. I was not happy with the “commercialism” of the new dentist nor was I happy with the unnecessary x-rays. Once I realized that I could switch back to Dr. Karst I did and I’ve been happy ever since. They’ve worked with my youngest son’s gag-reflex problem, hoping he’d grow out of it. The care from all the staff has always been top notch. I do miss Elizabeth being in the office but the rest of the administrative staff have been equally professional and friendly.

Thank you Dr. Karst and staff,

You all went above and beyond the call of duty for Nicky (a special needs patient). She likes being fused over and you all do it so well.
