My wife and I started going to the Arizona Smile Center (then called the Gilbert Dental Center) in the mid 1990’s after relocating to the area from Boston. Having had our share of both good and not-so-good dentists over the years, it quickly became clear to us that Dr. Bollwinkle and his team were not only good – they were great. Dr. Bollwinkle and Dr. Packer (now retired) took excellent care of our teeth, as well as our son’s, for the next several years until we moved to San Diego in 2006. But the story doesn’t end there.
After trying a number of dentists in the San Diego area, we realized that no one was going to measure up to the expertise, trustworthiness and professionalism of Dr. Bollwinkle; we just didn’t feel comfortable with -- or trusting in -- the local dentists we tried. That’s why we decided to go back to the Arizona Smile Center even though we no longer live in Arizona.
Yes, it’s more expensive booking a flight to Phoenix instead of simply driving from our previous home in Fountain Hills, but to us it’s worth it. Each year we fly in for check-ups, cleanings, the occasional crown or filling, and any other work that’s recommended, and we leave knowing that our teeth have been cared for by dental practitioners in whom we have total trust and complete confidence. In addition, the team of hygienists, along with the front office staff, are the best in the business. We wholeheartedly recommend Dr. Bollwinkle and his team at the Arizona Smile Center!
