Patient Testimonials

Let me first say how pleasant the young lady is that greets you as you walk in the door of the office and during the process of checking out. She was helpful and smiling all the time. The young lady that took Paul back for the procedure was very friendly and patient with Paul as he walked back with her. Now to Dr. Vanderburg my husband's first words to me were "That operation was a smooth as silk" He was so pleased with Dr. Vanderburg in every way. He said she really knew what she was doing and was very professional doing it. Thank you Dr. Vanderburg for taking such good care of Paul. Oh I also understand you went above and beyond the call of duty thanks for changing the battery in his hearing aid. Nan

I want to thank Dr. Vanderburg and her stafff for their professionalism and the level of care shown to me during my root canal procedure. My dentist referred me to her office and Dr. Vanderburg saw me immediately. She was very kind and calmed any fears by explaining the procedure beforehand. It was quick and painless.....a root canal of all things. I highly recommend Dr. Vanderburg for your Endodontic needs. She cares!


Amazing is an understatement for the Professionalism, Procedure, and Care I received as a patient of Dr. A. Vanderburg. The mere mention of Root Canal brings certain types of fear and thoughts of unusual pain to many minds (LoL). But may I say that while there may have been a bit of fear on my behalf, there certainly was no pain and definitely no need for fear. In fact both of my visits were quite pleasant. Dr. Vanderburg’s Professionalism and Knowledge Is stellar for a lack of a better word and so is her staff (Danielle Riggins). With this testimony I thank Dr. Vanderburg and her Staff and highly recommend her services to one and all.

I want to thank all the staff for a wonderful experience. I went in scared it was going to hurt. Each of the staff made me totally comfortable and even made me laugh. I did not experience even a little bit of pain... even the shot did not hurt. I will certainly recommend you to all my friends and will thank Dr. Duke for referring me to you.
