  • I’ve found Dr. Lindquist to be very knowledgable and skillful in her practice. She listens well and explains things clearly. She’s happy to do some gentle “hand holding” when asked to help my nerves during a procedure with additional feedback and information. And her staff is outstanding! Skillful, friendly and gentle too. I’ve been very pleased with my experience with her office.

  • I’ve had the best experience with Pearlie Whites Dentistry. After 11 years of avoiding having another experience like I had with my last dentist, I appeared on their doorstep dreading the work I needed. Complaints I know they heard before, but still were professional and casual with me, helping me calm my restless energy. Having strangers up close and personal is not easy, but this office has this cheery comfortable atmosphere the has put me at ease.
    Theresa Lindquist runs a great team.
