What People Have to Say About Us

Truly the best dentist experience I’ve ever had! I feel like many people get a bit of anxiety going to the dentist, but this has opened my eyes to how amazing it can be! Kendra was AMAZING. She was so informative and thorough. She explained exactly what was going on with my teeth in such a simple way and steered me in the right direction. Dr. Dreher is incredible as well.

Jason N. Troy, NY

“Dr. Dreher and his staff safely removed my amalgam filling. They answered everyone of my questions and listened to me about my concerns regarding waiting longer to feel number before beginning the procedure and checking in with me often to make sure I was ok. It was a really positive experience and I’m so relieved my mouth is now amalgam free. Thanks Dr. Dreher!”

Sara H. Saratoga, NY

“I've been a patient of Dr. Dreher's for several years now. Having had MANY traumatic dental experiences since my teen years, I experience a significant amount of anxiety with any dental issues. I was looking for a compassionate and competent dentist. Holistic care is also very important to me. Dr. Dreher came highly recommended in all areas of concern!”

Jules C. Albany, NY

“My son made me an appointment after listening to me complain about a tooth too long! Dr. Dreher is a new dentist for us, and he got me in right away for a very over sensitive tooth. His application of Novocain was above and beyond. I didn't feel it even a bit the way he pre numbed me with a topical.”

Roxane N. Albany, NY

“I had shopped for a holistic dentist to remove all my mercury fillings since I was concerned about the safe removal and wanted an experienced dentist who follows the protocols as developed by the IAOMT which is all about the protection of the patient and the practitioner. Dr. Dreher fit the bill and I have been extremely impressed by him and his wonderful staff who are all extremely pleasant, well trained and professional.”

Penny M. Schenectady, NY

I take my health very seriously, so I was excited to find a holistic dental practice in the capital region. As a new patient, I've had a very positive experience so far. Dr. Dreher and team are very thorough and efficient in their work. It's refreshing to have a dentist who asks the right questions and actually cares about your well-being. The staff is incredibly helpful and pleasant. Definitely recommend!
