Patient Testimonials

My dentist highly recommended Dr. Vanderburg. I was in excruciating pain due to an abscess and much decay. The office is a one and a half hour drive for me and my visit was broken into 2 sessions. Dr. Vanderburg and her assistant Valerie were very professional and worked well together. It was not a lengthy procedure at all and I didn’t experience any discomfort which was refreshing.


Me experience here has been a great one. Christina was very pleasant from the first initial phone conversation to upon my visit. You get a relaxing feeling as soon as you arrive in the office. Aga was so wonderful. She extremely pleasant, friendly and gave me also a calm and relaxing experience. Dr Vanderburg was also wonderful! I could have fallen asleep! She was so gently and did an outstanding job!!! I hope I don’t have to return but if ever in need I will certainly come back here!!! Thanks to all of you for your professionalism and calming experience!!!

My personal experience at this office was amazing the Doctor and her staff are awesome! My husband made me a appointment here when i was a few weeks pregnant and having the worse tooth pain you could imagine!!!! Doc contacted us same day and with in a hour or so and offered to stay late to give me something to relieve the pain till she could get me in for a appointment!    I’m completely grateful to her and her staff for helping me until I was able to have them finish my root canal. I pray I don’t have to go back for another tooth issue but I wish she was a general dentist too because I love them and I’d look forward to going . Take it from me it’s completely worth it and she is so kind and makes you feel at home and safe!

Wow! After two other root canals from other places, I never thought I could actually enjoy one! Being under the excellent care of Dr. Aurelia Vanderburg is a totally positive experience. I did my research to find this good doctor. She is highly educated, Board Certified, even award winning, and above all she is an absolutely gifted Endodontist with amazing skills. I was stunned to have th procedure completed with no more pain than a haircut, in about the same time. I am very thankful that Dr. Vanderburg saved me thousands by flawlessly drilling through my bridge with perfect precision rather than having to remove and replace it. Would I travel across the country for Dr. Vanderburg’s service if I needed another root canal. Heck yes! Definitely!

A root canal is never a pleasant experience, I know because I have had over 10 in my life. But the compassion and professionalism of Dr Vanderburg and her staff made this the best procedure in my experience. I was most impressed that Dr Vanderburg drove from another office after hours to meet me. I had just had cervical disc surgery and the infection in my tooth was extremely painful and frightening. Dr Vanderburg took on my emergency as if it was her emergency and for that I am extremely grateful. All of this took place during the covid pandemic when many dental offices would not see patients. The whole office is friendly and professional. The office is clean and bright. I am glad I found them and will recommend to my friends and family.
