“I have been coming to Dr Dettmer since the 70s. Every issue I have had with my teeth was explained thoroughly, repaired expertly or referred to wonderful specialists. Dr. Bauer has been a pleasure to get to know and I feel that I am equally in expert dental care. The whole staff has truly made this office feel like the patient is extended family and those who have left are truly missed after so many years – while those who are newly met have lived up to the friendly, extremey competent atmosphere that I have appreciated for so many years.” Kitty Bruno

experience today. You made them feel comfortable and calm during their
cleaning. I really appreciate it! Taylor specifically was very
excited about her checkup and talked about all the new stuff she
learned. I’ve always loved going to the dentist and it is very
refreshing for me to hear that Taylor is excited too. We will see you
in a few weeks.
Thank you again.”  Aimee

” It was great to be back in your dental care Dr. Dettmer. It seems like
only a few years ago, however it was much, much longer than that. The
visit was like returning to my old neighborhood. A very good feeling and
I look forward to our next meeting in April. Also it will surely be
warmer weather then. Until then, keep well.” Bob

“First visit and found the entire staff very professional and efficient.
The dentist was on time, friendly and thorough while the hygienist was
equally as knowledgeable and friendly. Good experience!!!”

“Clearly, we love the entire office…. thank you!”

Bauer is an artist!!

I came to see him looking like a hockey player and left the office a few
hours later amazed by what he had done. I can’t tell my real tooth from
the “fix” he created for my missing front tooth. Moreover, the kind
reception and support that accompanied his most excellent work made the
entire experience exceptional. I stand ready and willing to provide a
testimonial to anyone interested!”

Kevin Maguire 2/19/14

“Excellent care and wonderfully kind staff. Thanks to all!”
Becky 2/05/14

again, Dr. Bauer exceeded my expectations! He took time and great care
to answer my questions, advise me and treat my dental needs, which have
grown more complex recently with gum and retainer issues. Like the 20
years of history I have with Dr. Dettmer as my dentist, Dr. Bauer is
meticulous with the quality of his work. I am absolutely delighted with
the outcome” Janet Hulet 1/29/14

“The office temperature was about 50 degrees due to sub-zero weather and a
furnace struggling to keep up. When Dr. Dettmer came in to start
working on me, he brought a shearling throw to cover me with so I didn’t
get chilled during the hour I was in the chair. Now THAT’S good
patient service!!!” 1/9/14

“I have been going to Dr. Dettmer for 40 years, ever since I moved to Wheaton from California. Our family dentist never used any type of medication. He just drilled our teeth and filled the cavity and never spoke a word. I was afraid of him and it was pure hell for me. I am grateful for the comfort, care, and understanding that Dr. Dettmer and staff showed me. I am also grateful for the quality of the work he provided.  My fillings and crowns have lasted many years and have not had to be replaced.” Karen Loan 9/16/13

If this is published, please do not publish my name other than “Long standing and very satisfied patient, Thanks.”6/20/13

“I have been a patient of Dr. Dettmer’s practice for 25 years and have consistently been impressed with the exceptional level of service from the whole staff. From the front desk to the dental teams, everyone is remarkably friendly, respectful, compassionate and helpful. The have never recommended a procedure that was not necessary for my well being, and have provided long-lasting treatments and excellent prevention methods to promote my good health and comfort. Not only has the medical experience itself been painless, they also deftly coordinate the insurance process for me, and have always taken into account and accommodated my payment ability, especially when finances have been difficult. They have continually put my health needs first and shown a vested interest in my quality of life, and I feel very lucky to have found a group of folks that make the proverbially dreaded dental appointment a surprisingly enjoyable thing. Kudos to the whole Dettmer & Bauer team!” 6/6/13

I have been very satisfied with Dr. Dettmer’s caring and excellent dental work. I have been seeing Dr. Bauer for a few years now. Dr. Bauer is very knowledgable, talented and caring dentist as well.

“I couldn’t be happier with the staff and the quality of work I receive at each and every visit! I am confident that the work done is what I need and nothing more than that. My only regret is that I didn’t start going to Dr. Dettmer years ago! Kudos to Dr. Dettmer and his staff”. Cheryl 5/14/13

“I’ve been coming to Dr. Dettmer for I don’t know how many years and feel like they are all old friends. I think he is a superb dentist and all the people In the office are experts at what they do.

“I’m so happy to have found your practice and have already made several referrals.

The entire staff is friendly and professional.” 2/7/13

“This was one of the best dental experiences I have ever had. The staff is amazing. I have never witnessed
such excellence in customer service. Dr. Bauer even took the time to do an additional procedure at my request as long as I was there so I did not have to make another trip to the office. My only complaint is it appears to be a bit pricey and they require you to pay up front and be reimbursed by the insurance company.” A very satisfied patient 1/22/13

“My family and I have been coming to Dr Dettmer and Dr Bauer’s office for many, many years. Each and every time we have the best experience! Everyone is always friendly and kind. They each make us feel at home. When our oldest son was going to homecoming for the first time, I called Debbie and asked her a good florist for a corsage as I knew her kids had done this just a few years before. That is how comfortable everyone makes you feel. In such a large area with a large population, everyone at Dettmer and Bauer make you feel like you are not just another customer, but part of the family. Thank you to all the staff and doctors!” Denise Hendrickson 11/28/12

“I have been going to Dr. Dettmer’s office since I was in I think 3rd or 4th grade (I’m now 45). I’ve since moved a distance away but still make the trip because I think of them as family. The staff cares about what I have to say and it’s always good to see them when I go in. I’ve known Dr. Dettmer and Rochele as long as I can remember and have moved with them from a small office in the beginning to a little larger one to where they are now. I have also had the experience to have Dr. Bauer do my checkups and he is as friendly and caring as anyone can be. I am looking to continue visiting them far into the future.” Gary Eickoff 11/13/12

“The administrative personnel are professional, friendly, and client oriented. The hygienist provided a pain free, comfortable cleaning and exam. Additionally, she educated me further on addressing dry mouth. I may be prejudiced, but I have never spent time with a more wonderful person and caring dentist than Dr. Bauer.

“As always, it is a pleasant, positive experience when coming to dental appointments at Drs. Dettmer and Bauer. It’s interesting you ask about the cleanliness of the office because I noticed yesterday how nice the office and bathroom looked. During these challanging times, office space and bathrooms are the first places to suffer when making necessary cost cuts. I know this is true because I visit many buildings as part of my day-to-day job requirements.” Sherri K  5/11/12

“I was in today to get a filling. After some very negative experiences with different dentists in the past, I was extremely nervous when I came in. I was so impressed that everyone in the office was incredibly patient and tried so hard to put me at ease, whether it was bringing me a stress ball to squeeze while I was in the chair, taking time to explain everything and just talk to me to help calm me down, or Dr. Dettmer telling me that he would go as slow as I needed so that I would feel more comfortable with the process. Overall, I had a much better experience than I thought getting a filling could possibly be. Thanks!” 4/19/12

“All of the above are reasons why I have been a patient with Dr. D. and his staff for 31 years.”
Margaret  4/4/12

“The staff is very friendly and professional! The best!” 4/2/12

I was told about what to expect and that I could choose novicaine at any time I became uncomfortable with what was going on. I know all the staff very well and they are very helpful and friendly. It makes a trip to the dentist stress free.” 2/9/12

“I and my 94 year old mother both had dental appointments this morning. When we left Mom said “Boy, that Dr. Bauer is really cute!” So, not only is the dental care terrific but Mom loves the “scenery.” 1/12/12

“Since I had a dental emergency, I was pleased that I could be seen so quickly, within an hour of my phone call. And, Dr. Dettmer even called me today to be sure I was ok. Needless to say, I am much better and was in good hands.” Candy Wiseman  1/12/12

“Happy New Year to all the staff and doctors. See you in March.”  Bob B 1/12/12
