Newhart Dental is great. I had a tooth that another dentist screwed up. Newhart is up front regarding pricing and how to obtain assistance with payments.  Steve was great, made me feel relaxed and used good medicine.  Michael is the best making sure you stay comfortable.  Nikki and Crystal are the most precious in the world and the other girls who names I have not mention because of memory lol… you are precious too.  Very happy with the work and honesty.

You will love this office. They got me in right away for a root canal. I was in lots of pain and they fixed it so fast. Soooooo greatful to feel better. Can’t say enough about their kindness and caring and helpfulness. The girls in the front and the people in back that help the doctor as well as Dr. Ortega, he was great. I recommend and give 5 stars!!!!

Newhart Dental is the best dental office. All of the employees are so courteous, helpful and just down right comforting. I had a dental emergency. I had went to another dental office and the dentist was so uncaring and was just in it for the money. The dentist never once offered me a solution to my dental emergency. I called Newhart Dental. The receptionist told me to come on in, let us see what we can do for you. I went straight in, I saw “Dr. Ortega” and he was ABSOLUTELY WONDERFUL. He told me not to worry, he would fix me right up. Let me just say, Dr. Ortega gave me back my smile and it was ALL WORTH IT! Dr. Ortega is the “best. Trust me when I say, if you go to Newhart Dental, they will treat you like the queen / King that you are and….. the surrounds music that plays in the office is the absolute best. This dental office is The BEST!!!!!!!!!!! Tammy

Newhart Dental inherited me as a patient when they took over for Weiner & Kaufman whom I’ve gone to my entire life. Transitions can be difficult from one team to another but they have managed to handle it seamlessly. The staff is helpful and welcoming. They go out of their way to communicate clearly whether it be about needed dental work, appointment times, or cancellations. If you are not of fan of the dentist, I would highly recommend this practice. Everyone is friendly and accommodating. I won’t pretend that dental work is particularly fun, but since you have to do it you may as well go to a happy group of people that will help you find the sunny side of things with a pleasant experience.

I’d been going to Newhart Ortho for almost 2 years and they been amazing, so I tried the dental office because it’s right next door. Initial appointment was fine, but had some problems along the way. They contacted me to let me know they’re making improvements to the dental office. The Ortho office has always been great. I’m looking forward to seeing the same level of great customer service and knowledgeable staff as the Newhart Ortho. 🙂

So beautifully decorated.. a nice calm feel. The front desk ladies were nice and got us a room quick. Dr. Newhart was very friendly and made my 4 year old feel safe. He didn’t recommend doing x-rays which I liked and recommended flouride mouthwash. He said he didn’t want to tramatize her because these are her baby teeth anyways. I am so very pleased of our visit. I was out of there in less than a hour and they scheduled us an appointment in two days to do some cleaning. I have recommended a friend to get her son’s braces done here.

The staff at Newhart Dental are fantastic! The administrative staff and the dental staff are friendly, professional, and competent. I’ve had the pleasure of working with Dr. Newhart and Dr. Burgess, and I highly recommend them and this Dental Office. Dr. Burgess has a calming effect and he knows what he is doing. I want to thank the entire staff at Newhart Dental, you’re the best!!! – Sharon Smith, patient

Excellent dental office. The staff is very friendly and professional. I walked in without an appointment with an awful toothache and from the get go the staff set out to help me and I wasn’t even a patient at that time. 15 mins later I already had X rays done and shortly Dr. Serino saw me. He is very knowledgeable and dedicated, as is the assistant Nikki. These guys worked hard to ease my pain, fix my teeth and get me on my way. Thanks guys, you’ve got a new lifetime patient. Look up the staff’s bios. All dentists are from top schools, well qualified. Also, the staff explained expenses clearly, without putting pressure and offered great financing options.

Had my first appointment on Friday and I was very pleased. I was referred to Dr. Newhart through 1800Dentist. Once I set up my appointment I began looking at reviews. I was skeptical about this dental office because of all the mixed reviews and complaints I found online. I have to say i’m glad I followed my own mind. The office was clean and quiet, the staff was extremely nice and helpful, they are patient and answered all questions. I was evaluated by Dr Newhart himself and I was pleased with his plan for me and my dental work. The best part is THE PRICE! I have seen other orthodontics and their prices for me were $5,000 & up. Dr Newharts price for me was only $3,800! And Dr Newharts wife (handles financial part) also worked with me on my monthly payments to make sure I was comfortable and able to pay. I have to shout out Erica, she was very sweet and helpful. She has the clear braces im getting so I asked her about them when I walked in and when I was later called to back she sat down and talked with me about how she likes them, how she keeps them clean etc. she spoke to me like we were good friends, not like I was a patient and I appreciated that because it made the visit less “scary”. Overall I am pleased and excited about my 2 year process with this office.
