I have gone to Dr. Wildern since childhood and now my own five children also go to that office. We even have to drive 40 min. to get there. The staff is very helpful in working with our schedule, following through with insurance and working with young children to make them comfortable. The work is quality and thorough. They are also as thoughtful of our appt. time as if my time is as valuable as theirs.

The level of professionalism shown and quality of work was top-notch. I am very confident that I will not get more or less treatment than I need. ...very satisfied and confident that I am in good, competent hands.

I enjoyed my time here, I never had to wait long to get into a room and I plan to return with any dental needs. All procedures went extremely well.

I have been going to Dr. Wildern’s office for over six years now. I have gotten full braces there and some fillings. I get my annual cleanings done there as well. The office is in a great location and I love their late hours and especially that they're available on Fridays in case of an emergency. Dr. Wildern is also very thorough and took the time to show me the x-rays of my teeth and where and why I need work done. It made me feel involved in the process and let me know that he knew what he was doing. His staff is also very nice and helpful. I recommend anyone to go there for all of their dental needs because they'll get an honest opinion and some quality dental work done at their convenience.

If you want a dentist that you can trust and rely on as a professional, and feel comfortable with as a person, Dr. Wildern (and his staff) is the one you seek!  I had been with another local dentist for several years. As his practice grew, so did my concerns over suggestions, treatments and fees. I was referred to Dr. Wildern by my brother-in-law (a well respected dentist in Traverse City) The assistants and staff here are pleasant, personable, knowledgeable and helpful. In addition to my regular cleanings, Dr. Wildern has guided me through and performed some major dental work (as a periodontal patient, I opted for an "extensive" bridge rather than dentures!) He has transformed my smile.... inside and out!

Dr. Wildern is a great dentist that takes care of our whole family. He has been seeing all of my kids since they were 3 years old. The oldest is currently in braces with Dr .Wildern and it is going very well. He has also done a lot of work for me and my husband, including crowns and fillings. I love their flexible schedule and immediate emergency appointments.

Just had major dental work and Dr. Wildern made this as painless as possible and did a great job!

I called all around town on a Friday and could not get a hold of a dentist anywhere and then I called Dr. Wildern. They said how soon could I come over. I was in very bad pain. They got me right in and talked with me about my problem and also let me know what other areas need work and which was the most important. My toothache was taken care of and now I am working on saving my teeth thanks to Dr. Wildern and his staff.

Wonderful place to be in an emergency even without dental insurance :)

Bradley A - Customer since 2013

I just finished my first visit to Kent R. Wildern DDS. It was my first visit to a dentist in at least 5 yrs (which is embarrassing to admit) and the entire staff was understanding and amazing. I was referred there by my fiancé for good reason, as this was one of my better experiences at a dentist office. Great job to everyone there.


Jayne C - Customer since 2005

My hygienist was great! She was very personable and efficient. She put me at ease and was excellent for this "gagger" when it came time for the dreaded X-Rays! Thank you!


Susan O - Customer since 2005

I am a long time patient of Dr. Wildern and have had extensive dental work done. Yesterday's visit was for a sore spot on my gum. I called the day before and was promptly scheduled for the next morning. Dr. Wildern quickly determined the cause of my discomfort, decided on a procedure to fix the problem and did the procedure on the spot. Dr. Wildern is a skilled dentist and is never satisfied unless his work is up to his very high standards. His staff members are warm and friendly. I have been very pleased with his work as has my husband. Thanks, Dr. Wildern!

As always: on time; efficient; hygienist who doesn't stab me in the gums while cleaning my teeth; and a doc who isn't anxious to do unnecessary work. Cheerful, pleasant staff all around. Comfortable, clean, high tech office. Dr. Wildern has been our family dentist since we moved to GRR 20+ years ago, each of us seeing him every 6 months. My adult son still sees him as well. No complaints.

I had my first visit to your office was wonderful. I had to unexpectedly bring my 2 yr old granddaughter w/me and the staff and Dr Wildern were great at making her feel comfortable also! I would highly recommend this office.

Good dentist. Very thorough. Michelle, hygienist supreme!


5 stars - James E - Customer since 2013

Wonderful experience! Our Dental Hygienist was incredibly thoughtful - when she saw an opening following my oldest daughters appointment - she suggested that my younger child fill it for their first dental appt.. She was absolutely wonderful with our children making it a fun/learning experience for them both. We truly appreciate the extra mile your staff makes with making us feel so welcome. Thank you!


Jane H - Customer since 2013

My move required I change dentists. I had been happily using the same dentist for about 25 years, so this was quite an adjustment. My son who also was a new patient gave a glowing recommendation, so I too became a new patient. My experience was exceptional. The staff was helpful, friendly and professional. My first appointment was quickly made and my care was with the latest equipment, methods and gentleness. The questions regarding previous treatment were knowledge and friendly, which made the whole visit relaxing, even in a dentist’s chair. I am so relieved to find my new dental home because I know healthy teeth and mouth can make life that much better. I cannot give a high enough recommendation to Dr. Wildern's dental practice.


Brittany P - Customer since 2011

Love, love, love, Dr. Wildern and his staff! They’re so non-judgmental and friendly. They all make me feel so comfortable, and I seriously don't mind going into the dentist. I love the way they take their time when they're cleaning my teeth and leave them looking and feeling bright! Best office ever!

Theresa G - Customer since 2013

Great staff! Very gentle cleaning, my usually sensitive teeth felt great!


Anonymous - Customer since 2013

I knew to financial difficulty that there wasn't much the dentist could do at my first appointment, but I was glad to get started and now I know what the plan is for the future so I can start feeling better soon. I loved how friendly and helpful all of the staff were. Once they knew about my financial difficulty they let me know about Care Credit, which might help lighten the load for us. I very grateful to how helpful they were and very friendly at the same time, I look forward to continuing to work with Dr. Wildern and his staff.

Arrived early for appointment and actually got seated early for x-rays & cleaning. Everything went wonderfully. Always a professional atmosphere.

Always on time. Michelle's the BEST. Friendly office staff and Dr. Wildern is great. If you're looking for a new dental office, give this one a try. I "visited" several before coming here and have been completely happy with the level of customer service and attention.
