Purely Dental gave me multiple reminders of scheduled April 2021 appoint-ment for a regular checkup and teeth cleaning. As usual, on my arrival at their office I was greeted warmly and checked regarding temperature, health and current condition. My checkup and teeth cleaning was performed by the resident dentist, Dr. Marnie Schreiner and was thorough & comfortable, and I felt like a member of the family. Strong recommendations from me!!

I have been to Dr. Schreiner's office for an overall exam and one filling. I am thrilled to have found a dentist that is very thorough, calm and exhibits professional common sense. She was more thorough doing her exam and explaining my teeth to me than anyone I have ever encountered. Dr.Shreiner's staff is equally qualified. Friendly, open and relaxed. I believe, after all of my years and experiences with various dentists, that Dr. Schreiner is very close to being one of the best dentists that I have ever had the pleasure of knowing. Daniel Stein

Dr. Schreiner is detailed, gentle and honest. She walked us through the concerns for both myself and two children. Made great recommendations for orthodontists that she reaches out to and discusses the recommended treatments. I'm not the Dr., therefore the coordination between them makes me feel at ease knowing they both are fully aware of the issues at hand. Her office is on time, convenient and the friendliest receptionist and hygienists. The bonus is that my kids don't mind going to the dentist. She makes the experience "not horrible." They don't mind going to the dentist. And her honestly on the recommended treatment after experiencing shady dentistry previously keeps our family coming back to her office again and again. She's awesome!

My first appointment with Dr. Schreiner went extremely well it was very pleasant. She is a good listener, easy going and attentive to details of my past history, issues and concerns. She is excellent at informing you what she is doing as she performs plus discusses her observations openly. New patient paperwork was straight forward and Pam had everything ready-to-go in advance of my appointment and at the end.

Purely dental is a great dental office. I had my first appointment today. It was very thorough and Dr. Schreiner took the time to really explain everything and allowed me to ask all my questions. We came up with a great plan for what needs to be done. I was very nervous (given the pandemic) but felt very safe and comfortable in their office. It was very clean and they had great safety protocols in place which made me feel very safe. Dr. Schreiner and the staff were all very professional and very nice. I highly recommend this office.
