Testimonials

I have tetracycline stained teeth and, as a result of this, I had 16 porcelain veneers/crowns completed by a dentist in 2004. The result was horrible and I had problems right away and needed to replace all the restorations.  I would saythat choosing this first dentist was the biggest mistake I've ever made in my life.
 
It took me 6 years of suffering after this initial mistake to meet Dr. Henke and the restorative replacement took another 2 years, but I finally completed my teeth in April 2012.
 
Three important attributes that I have found in Dr. Henke are: 1) he spent so much time listening to my opinion, very patiently, as well as giving me his opinion, 2) He made so many tiny adjustments to make my teeth properly functional and 3) He made my teeth look very natural so no one notices they are porcelain crowns!
 
I saw so many dentists before I met Dr. Henke and from those experiences, I don't think there are many dentists who can do all three. If a dentist doesn't do 1 at all, I can't expect him/her do 2 and 3. I believe that all 3 must be present if someone cares about the quality of the final restoration.
 
One additional positive aspect of Dr. Henke's office were the staff in his office.  They were always very nice and friendly. Trina, Dr. Henke's assistant made me relax with her smile and friendly conversation.
 
I used to regret what happened 8 years ago, but not anymore. Dr. Henke took my long term headache away from me. Thank you very much, Dr. Henke for your hard work. I love my teeth now.

After years of suffering migraines from improper crown work from a general dentist, I sought treatment from Dr. Henke. He replaced 6 frontal crowns and corrected an abnormal bite, freeing me from migraines. I found him to be meticulous with exceptional attention to detail and my results were amazing. In addition to correcting my problem, I had the bonus of ending up with a beautiful, bright smile! I never expected that I would receive so many compliments about how amazing and perfect my smile now is! I cannot thank Dr. Henke enough for his patience, kindness and expertise.
