Here’s what some of our patients are saying. Thanks for the kind words!

  • “This is probably the best decision I’ve ever made in my life to come to SmilesRForever. And Dr. Blattner has done a wonderful job and his staff is just excellent. They take care of you from the beginning to the end and I would recommend SmilesRForever to anyone and everyone. If you need to have dental work done this is the place you oughta come to because I recommend it wholeheartedly.”

  • “The trays were really comfortable, at first, obviously it takes time to get used to it, but I feel like this is a way easier route than braces. Cause if you want to eat you take them out and eat, then you brush your teeth and put them back in.” Melissa said. “It has really straightened out my bottom teeth. My top teeth were pretty straight, but we wanted to match the bottom teeth with the top teeth and now everything is straight. It’s really nice.”

  • "I have had so many complements regarding my new smile due to the new crowns Dr. Heberer put in. I have my smile back! Thank you for giving me my confidence back. The whole team that worked on me did an amazing job!"

  • "After having Invisalign I am very happy with my smile."

  • "Thank you Dr. Blatter/SmilesRForever. I am so happy to not fear the dentist anymore. You are like a fine wine, you get better with age."

    Linda J.
  • "I am surprised and happy with my appliance, have not slept this good in years. I feel great every morning I wake up just from using the sleep device. My wife says she sleeps good too now. No more snoring."

    Jack H.
  • "Thanks for taking time to take good care of me throughout the years. This visit was very pleasant from the doctor and the hygienist."

    Marie Z.
  • "Wonderful, ‘spa-like’ experience. Love getting my teeth cleaned!"

  • "Everyone at Smiles made me feel welcome and comfortable! All of my options were explained to me and my questions were patiently answered. The whole time I was there, I felt like I was treated with competence and care."

    Jeantielle G.

    Mark W.

    Nadine R.

    Angie L.

    Larry C.

    Patty P.
  • "It is not cumbersome compared to C-PAP. No more respiratory problems or infections. Sleep is better. No more snoring. Feel better in morning."

    Deborah W.
  • "A while back, I began to experience difficulty sleeping through the night. I was snoring, waking up a lot, tired during the day and having little energy to do the things I liked to do...  I visited my dentist for my regular cleaning and check-up. Dr. John Blattner has been my dentist for the past 25 years. I mentioned my dilemma to Dr. Blattner during his review of my medical history. He asked a lot of questions and listened to my sleep issues and concerns. He explained a lot about snoring and sleep apnea that I hadn’t heard before this appointment... Dr. Blattner explained to me that an oral appliance could help me sleep better and perhaps solve my snoring and apnea issues... The day I got my oral appliance, it took a few adjustments to get it “just right” and fit well. I wore it for about a half hour in the office while I listened to Dr. Blattner explain how to clean and care for my new oral appliance. In that short period of time, I could tell that this oral appliance was fitting comfortably and was a lot less hassle than a CPAP. I even told Dr. Blattner that I felt like this would work! The first night was a little weird, but I wore it all night and every night since. I am more rested, more energetic and my sleep is less disrupted. I am now getting a good night’s sleep – thanks to Dr. Blattner and my oral appliance!"

    Pam D.
  • My visit was successful. Everyone was courteous and professional. Amanda is great. Dr. Blattner was informative and answered my questions to my satisfaction.

    Annie H.
  • Always enjoy the job Dr. Battner and his staff do. Very professional but also very compassionate and caring. Meagan made sure I was comfortable during my cleaning and asked how I was frequently. Great job 🙂

  • I cannot believe how fast and pain free getting my crown prep done today was. Dr. Heberer is the best. So patient, friendly and most importantly, he does great work!! Nicole was very sweet during the process.

    Judy L.
  • Feeling great! Thank you so much Jessica & Dr. Blattner!

    Kim R
  • Dr. Blattner and Staff are excellent. I needed service right away and it was done... more than I expected. I am forever a "Smiles R Forever" patient.

    Paulette L.
  • Thank you so much for being kind and understanding with me. Dr. Blattner is really nice and he really helps me out with my anxiety with anything dental. The advice that I've gotten here and the help has greatly improved my oral health. I really love this dentist office.

    Gina K.
  • The staff of smiles R Forever are amazing. They make you feel like family. Hats off to Dr. Heberer and Dr. Blattner who are excellent dentists.

    Grey M.
  • Dr. Blattner helped me to get a mouthguard to help with my teeth grinding and gave me the education i needed to better my oral health. My tooth pain and sensitivity have practically vanished since I've started seeing Dr. Blattner. I'm very grateful that he helped me learn preventative ways to care for my teeth. I recommend him to everyone!

    Gina R.
  • All the staff are friendly, helpful, caring and concerned for my welfare. I LOVE coming here and appreciate the help, support and service that you have provided over the years!

    Ellen C.
  • I can't get over how much better I feel since I have been using my sleep appliance. Wonder how I went so many years not using it. My days are full of energy!

    Jack H.
  • When Dr. Blattner asked what my thoughts were regarding my oral appliance, I told him I'd suggest to my friends and family that they get the sleep study done. This test is beneficial to their overall health. I never would have known I had mild sleep apnea without the suggestions to get tested by Dr. Blattner. Now that I've had my oral appliance for over a year now, I can't sleep without it!

    Rodneca S.
  • Within 2 days I noticed the difference. I wasn't tired anymore during the day. Should have tried this a long time ago!

  • My appliance is very comfortable. It keeps me from grinding my teeth. I feel relaxed by not grinding which helps me sleep.

    Gary D.
  • Sleeping A LOT better. Feeling better too! Waking up a lot less (was waking up 5-6 times, now maybe once) but I fall right back to sleep. If I fall asleep on the couch, I get up and get my appliance. I do not want to sleep without it!

    Robert C.
  • My Panthera is awesome! I never want to go back to a CPAP. Thank you!

    Anna S.
