If you dread going to the Dentist then you should transfer your records to Karl Lutes DMD office. Always friendly smiling faces make you feel welcome and they have a genuine concern for your dental health. Great experience and highly recommended. Gene Mullins

I made an appointment at Dr.Lutes and Dr.Lawson’s practice, on the advise of a good friend, after moving to this area. This practice exceeded my expectations. There is a calm friendliness as you enter the office. The staff is professional, knowledgable and attentive. All the staff introduced themselves, which has never happened to me before. My exam was comprehensive from the initial oral cancer screening to the dental cleaning. All concerns were discussed with me immediately which I appreciated. This office functions as a team /family with mutual respect for each other. Dr. Lutes and Dr. Lawson have a practice centering on high standards of excellent dental care in a caring manner. Thank you for being my new dentists!

Ken and I are searching for a new dentist. So, Ken George and I went in for a consultation with Dr Lutes. First of all, we were greeted by the ladies at the front desk! They all had big smiles, pleasant and very friendly. But, also very professional. The reception area is small, but clean. Big plus!. But, we had a short wait. The doctors were professional, through and are very personable! So, yes, we have upcoming appointments!!! We recommend Dr Lutes and Dr Natalie Lawson! And, the whole staff!! 5 Stars! Joy Lisle

I cannot say enough good things about Dr. Lawson and the rest of the team. I am normally extremely anxious about going to the dentist and everyone there always puts me at ease right when I walk through the door. I recently began my Invisalign journey and Dr. Lawson answered all of my questions and more without making me feel embarrassed or silly, and I felt so relieved when I left the office. If going to the dentist is normally something you dread, I encourage you to try their office. You won’t regret it!

Hands down the best dentist and staff! I have never really been a fan of going to the dentist – always made me a little uncomfortable, but then I found Lutes and his team. They make you feel so comfortable and relaxed. Starting with the warm greeting upon entering the office to the dentist chair, all while listening to a wide variety of good music over the speakers. You kind of forget you’re at the dentist! And the most important part – they do great work! Have been going here for years and would highly recommend them!

Karl Lutes and staff are absolutely as good as it gets. The staff is friendly, knowledgable and caring. The dental facility is clean and equipment used seems to be state of the art. Their Northern Kentucky / Cincinnati area dentistry work is 2nd to none. I’ve had a chipped tooth repaired there and multiple teeth cleanings. As a result, I’ve had experiences at their Crestview Hills, KY office, with Karl Lutes DMD, his dental hygene specialists, and office staff for both routine oral hygene work and “emergency” tooth repair work. I would highly recommend this Dentist to anyone and would go out of my way to take my family there.

I had my first visit today and I can tell you that this will definitely NOT be my last. From the moment I walked in I was treated like family, plus I was brought back promptly and didn’t have to wait (unlike most doctors). Speaking of doctors, my dentist was an absolute delight! I saw Dr. Natalie Lawson, who took my concerns to heart and answered all of my questions. Dr. Lawson truly helped put a nervous patient at ease and was thorough when explaining a complete overview of my mouth. For me if you have my trust you have my support, and this office has both! I will definitely be back and even looking forward to continuing my treatment here. I truly cannot recommend this place enough. Thanks again Dr. Lawson and staff!

This place is by far the best health care experience I have ever had! This past visit I was yummy uneasy because I was seeing a different hygienist for the first time and the newly hired dentist. I am very stubborn and I love things like that to stay the same, but this office has done such an incredible job of building their staff that I shouldn’t have even been worried! I loved them both!!! I would highly recommend this office!

I have been seeing Dr Lutes for over 15 years. Before that I was a patient of his father. Simply put, this practice prioritizes the patient experience above anything else. The staff is always professional and friendly. Procedures and costs are clearly explained. In my opinion, no other practice (dental or otherwise) has ever come close to being as awesome as Dr Lutes’.

If you’re looking for a great dentist, it’s hard to go wrong with Dr. Lutes! I recently visited his office as a new patient and came away impressed with every member of the staff I encountered as well as the quality of the dental services performed. The first thing I noticed when arriving at Dr. Lutes’ office were the friendly office staff that went out of their way to make me feel welcome. After submitting my new patient paperwork, I took a seat and waited for my name to be called. I didn’t wait long, though, as I was called back to begin my appointment on time; it seems like the office is well organized and runs like a well-oiled machine! After being escorted to the room where I would have my teeth examined and cleaned, I was introduced to Michelle — the hygienist that would be performing my checkup and cleaning. She was friendly, professional and thorough; before every step of the procedure, she would explain to me what she was about to do, and performed all of the dental work with a gentle touch… the process was totally pain-free! I also noticed several dental tools and technologies that I had never seen before at other dental offices (e.g., a small camera for taking pictures inside of your mouth before and after the cleaning, a digital monitor by the chair in the room that immediately displays the results of X-rays, etc.) which gave me the impression that the office keeps up-to-date on modern dental technologies. Before finishing the checkup, Dr. Lutes came into the room to examine my teeth. Again, much like his staff, I found him to be very friendly and knowledgeable, and I wouldn’t hesitate to return for future dental services. Overall, I’d rate my experience with Dr. Lutes and his staff a 10/10 – I’m a happy patient and would highly recommend his practice to anyone looking for a dentist!

Dr Lutes runs a great practice. I waited less than 5 minutes before I got into the examination room and his staff was extremely friendly and made me feel totally comfortable with my procedure. I’d highly recommend this practice to anyone looking for a great dentist.

Dr. Lutes office is one of the absolute best offices I have been a patient of. Nothing but friendly smiles, caring nature, and helpful 100% of the time. I actually enjoy going to the dentist because they make it a personal experience, and remember you and your stories. Excellent service. Would highly suggest this office to anyone. Thanks Dr. Lutes and staff!

My daughter has moved to North Carolina and on her first visit to a dentist there, the dentist commented that not only were her teeth the cleanest he had seen, but that her “previous dentist did an excellent job maintaining (her) original teeth around the fillings”. Getting praise from other professionals in the field speaks volumes. Thank you for the excellent work Dr. Karl!

I’m not sure what office Ms. Willis is referring to, but my experience at Dr. Lutes’ office was NOTHING like she describes. The entire staff was very professional and made me feel at “home”…even though I’m not a big fan of going to the dentist. 🙂 Dr. Lutes made me feel very comfortable and addressed all my concerns. I would highly recommend Dr. Lutes for your next dentist.

My friends can’t believe that I actually look FORWARD to going to the dentist. But it’s true. Dr. Lutes and his staff are always fun to be around. I am so happy with the work he has been doing to make my smile prettier. WITHOUT PAIN. The staff are so clearly enthusiastic about their field and their patients. Despite the lighthearted manner in the office, they all take their work very seriously.

Wesley Adam Lowe (Source: Facebook)


They provide such a pleasant atmosphere. It’s like sitting down with family. They are also very skilled…. and every single person remembers you every time you come in. I’ll never go anywhere else

Rachel Jonas (Source: Google)


Dr.Karl and the ladies at the office are always wonderful! I just started Invisalign a few days ago and I was super nervous. Everyone in the office made me feel really comfortable and Dr.Karl did a great job on my teeth. I was worried the experience in the office would be painful because they needed to do some interproximal reduction (hopefully I said that right) but it didn’t hurt at all. It was more nerve racking because of the sound it makes. I highly recommend Dr.Karl and his wonderful team!! Happy smiling everyone!!

I can’t say enough about the care and professionalism I received from Dr. Lutes and his team. From the moment I walked in the door I was greeted warmly with several hellos, and then escorted to the dental office & chair. His assistance and technicians were courteous, kind, and professional. throughout the visit and procedure, they outlined everything they were going to do, explaining it in a way that I could easily understand. They handled me with a gentleness and care that put my mind at ease. I knew instantly I was in excellent hands. Dental appointments have always been a scary thing for me in the past but Dr. Lutes and his team really alleviated all of my fears. Dr. Lutes Himself treated me professionally but also with the kindness that made me feel like a person and not just “another patient.” I was so impressed I scheduled my next appointment upon my exit. I strongly recommend anyone else to do the same. Absolutely one of the top dentists in the greater Cincinnati area! Thank you Dr. Lutes and your entire staff!!

Dr. Lutes & Dr. Lawson and the entire staff is so friendly and caring. Everyone cares about your well being and comfort during any procedures that you have done. They explain everything on all the work that they are performing. I was very anxious when having a crown and they really took my feelings into consideration. Dr. Lutes has a very soft touch and I was completely relaxed. Thanks for taking care of me!

M.J. Stallings (Source: Google)


Excellent, friendly and professional dental care. Five stars aren’t adequate to rate this practice. The front desk personnel, the assistants, the hygienists and Dr. Lutes are hard working, friendly and efficient! I have not met Dr. Lawson yet but I’m sure she is just as excellent as Dr. Karl.

What impresses me most – they’re an amazing staff who listen to their patient. When I came to Dr. Lute’s office as a new patient, I was coming from a dental background that was VERY corporate & I had become VERY skeptical & leery of the dental field altogether. When I came to Dr. Lutes office, admittedly my guard was up and I was prepared to be defensive…. however, what I came to find was a very positive and refreshing experience. What I found was my family’s new dental “home”. With my background in the dental field, I decided to schedule my visit first, to test the waters. At my first visit the staff asked me questions and listened to what I had to say. They understood my concerns and were amazing. I was so comfortable and pleased that I decided to bring my entire family to their practice, and we’ve all been extremely happy! We have all been treated by Dr. Lawson, and absolutely love her. She’s thoughtful and listens to what her patients concerns are. Did I mention she’s amazing?! When you walk in you’re greeted by Brittany and she’s always very kind and helpful. She knows who you are and always has a smile on her face. My whole family has also been treated by Erin (one of the hygienists), not only is she very knowledgeable, but she also goes over what she’s seeing what she recommends and is more than happy to listen to your questions and takes her time to make sure you know what’s going on as well. At our first visits she also did our cleanings. Katherine is the office manager who we met on our way out, she was very kind and helpful as well. There is no pressure here, there’s no hassle, nor do you feel as if you’re being hustled, there weren’t any sales pitches. Yes, they do have and will recommend products that could help to your dental routine at home, but it’s not a pressured sales pitch nor is it automatically built into your “plan”. I really have enjoyed getting to know the staff and look forward to seeing them each visit. If you’re looking for a team who are knowledgeable, professional, and yet find a way to make you feel at home and at ease – Dr. Lutes office is who you’re looking for. Thank you to this amazing team.

Dr. Karl is great and his staff is the best. They took such precautions for me and my husband, coming in for a cleaning during the COVID-19 pandemic. I was worried, but seeing the gloves, masks, extra cleaning, and still being able to see some smiling faces :), it was a good experience.

Always a fantastic experience at the office of Dr. Lutes! The warm friendly smiles at the desk with personalities to match creates a positive inviting atmosphere that is rare today in any business. I would recommend this dental office to any new families to the greater Cincinnati area. Counter intuitive as it seems, I love to visit the dentist at Dr. Lutes………….. Can you get this level of service at your dental office?

This was my first trip in a while to a dentist. My wife has been going there for years and talked me into going because of a couple of teeth that were a problem for a while. I usually do not like going to the dentist, but Dr. Lutes and his whole staff made me feel like I had been going there for years myself. It was my first time meeting all of them and you would of never known. And all by the way they do great dental work. Thanks to all of you.

I’ve had the best experience with their office, can’t imagine going anywhere else! Dr. Lutes and his entire staff make me feel right at home whenever I’m there. Of course, it’s not just about the friendly atmosphere… the results are equally impressive. I have a brighter smile thanks to their care. If you’re looking for a better option, give these guys a chance… and tell them I sent you!

Growing up I always had a fear of the dentist so when I originally came to see Dr. Lutes I was extremely apprehensive. The entire staff made me feel at home the minute I walked in the door and I immediately got treated like I was an old friend they’ve known forever! Ive been seeing Dr. Lutes for almost 3 years now and I’d never even consider changing offices. I used to hate my smile and I am now on the way to loving it thanks to him. He’s been incredible with any questions or concerns I’ve had on the road to my perfect smile. From cleanings to fillings to going through Invisalign, the whole team has been nothing but helpful. They’ve been extremely accommodating and considerate with the financial aspect of my treatment as well! The front desk girls came up with the perfect payment plan so I can get the smile I always dreamed of without breaking the bank. Ive sent every family member and friend to him without any hesitation. I would recommend him to anyone and everyone!! Thanks Dr. Lutes and staff, YOU ROCK! 🙂

I had a tooth emergency and needed to be seen as soon as possible, luckily Dr Lutes and his staff were able to get me in right away. They got me fixed up in no time! Awesome team!

I have not been to a dentist in 3 years because I am a big baby when it comes to getting work done on my teeth. I saw the reviews on google and decided to give Dr. Lutes a shot! I have no insurance and it was very affordable, with no hidden charges. The staff is very friendly and make you feel like part of their dentistry family. I will be back and will be recommending Dr. Lutes to everyone I know! It feels good to have my smiles back!

Dr. Lutes office keeps my teeth in wonderful condition. I always enjoy my visits and the folks that work there; they are incredibly proficient and always welcoming and friendly. If you are considering a dentist or are new to this area, call their office today and be treated as more than a “client.” thanks, Shirley

Okay, this place exceeded any expectation I’ve had or thought a dentist office should be. I just moved to Erlanger area and I feel like there is a dentist office on every corner so i decided to go to google reviews to weed out the bad one and there was only one place with 4 stars or better, this place Karl Lutes. The people there are beyond friendly and so attentive to detail. I went there for a routine cleaning and to fix a slightly chipped tooth. The took care of everything and didn’t even charge me for filing my tooth down. They had a pretty cool tool that took individual pictures of each tooth to compare it in the future if anything were to change. None the less, they made me feel like I was a super star lol I’m a 24 year old man and had been to plenty of other dentist but still I was in awe with the treatment I received there. I would definitely recommend to anyone who is looking for a dentist. Side note they also sent me text wishing me a happy birthday

Had several Implants replaced that I was unhappy with from a previous doctor. Dr. Lutes and his staff listened to all my concerns many many times with careful thought. I would leave an appointment and then 30 min later have 5 more questions so I’d call and the staff was so friendly and would answer my questions. Dr. Lutes genuinely cares about how his patience feel. Both Dr. Lutes and staff do amazing work! I love my smile now 🙂

Amazing service today! This is the best dental office I have ever been to. All the girls are amazing and of course Dr. Lutes too!! They will take care of you and work with you and your schedule. If there is one dental office you can’t wait to go back to it this one!! Thanks all see you soon!!

I found myself in a situation where I needed to have a repair made to an already once repaired crown. I relocated recently and ended up going somewhere near me , but didn’t have a good experience there. Afterward, I reached out to Dr. Lutes and was offered an appointment that same afternoon. Dr. Lutes’ staff was extremely accommodating and super friendly. Upon arriving to the office, I was greeted and had a seat in the waiting area. This was the first time I went to a dental practice and got to thumb through Far Side comic books! There were tons of them! Not only that, the music playing throughout the office was great. No piped in elevator music. Actual feel good music. So, I was already pretty relaxed by the time they called me back (which was in about two minutes). I explained what was happening with my crown and Dr. Lutes took a look in there. It needed some adjustments, which apparently he did, but I barely noticed. He was gentle, reassuring and thorough. He explained everything he was doing beforehand and during. I’m typically not impressed by technology, but Dr. Lutes had some great stuff in there! The x-rays were all taken from the chair and I could view them on the monitor right next to me. The images were crystal clear, a little too clear for my taste because they showed all the areas I miss when I brush! I was in an out in no time, but it was an experience I’ll remember. Not everyone enjoys going to the dentist, and I’m at the top of that list, but it was actually a pretty great time. I recommend Dr. Lutes and his staff wholeheartedly and without reservation. I was at ease the entire time and left the office feeling informed, repaired and happy.

Dr. Lutes and his staff are beyond amazing! Absolutely everything about my experience was wonderful. Polite, professional and courteous: Affordable at twice the price, Dr. Lutes gave me back my stellar smile! I strongly urge anyone seeking to have a “million dollar smile” to setup a consultation with Dr. Lutes and his amazing staff. You will not be disappointed!
