Amazing!! I don't even know where to start. Dr. Rethmeyer, is the best dentist I've ever met. Her work comes from the heart, and the staff are such sweet hearts. Words can not describe how grateful I am. Dr. Rethmeyer isn't just any dentist, she is the one with such a kind heart. After I endured the death of my mother, and taking the role of guardianship of my siblings. Dr. Rethmeyer reached out to me. She helped me in a way that I continue to believe that good people still exist. A dentist that opens out her heart to help others, is the best dentist anyone can have..... I highly recommend Dr. Rethmeyer!!

Going to the dentist isn't always an event one looks forward to, but Dr. Rethmeyer and her staff have done a wonderful job creating an environment that helps ease any anxieties. My medical issues had created a dental disaster, but thanks to Dr. Rethmeyer my teeth are in good shape. She takes the time to listen to all your needs and maps out a care plan specifically designed to get you the best outcome. If a procedure has to be done, she is diligent and careful upon administering the medication so it is as painfree as possible. I am truly blessed to have found this office. I can't thank her (and her staff) enough!! Their new location is beautiful, certainly rises to the level of care they provide.

We found Dr. Rethmeyer through a flyer sent to our home and decided to try her out. It was the best decision we made! Her office staff, from the initial phone call to the moment you walk in the door, is welcoming and professional. Dr. Rethmeyer greets you and takes you back for a health history prior to your first cleaning. She truly cares about your entire well being. We are so happy we received that flyer in the mail!

I have been coming here for many years and everyone is awesome. When you come here you are greeted by a great lady named Lydia who is always so very helpful and you know you are in good hands. Every member of the staff is always willing to help you out or answer and questions you may have. They are always very flexible and willing to work out a time that is best for you to come in and be seen. Thanks for all that you guys do! Keep up the great work!

I had a great dental experience with the best Dr. Rethmeyer. I had a filling re done and I didn't feel a thing. I strongly recommend Dr. Rethmeyer at her new beautiful modern office and friendly staff.




I have been seeing Dr. Rethmeyer for 20+ years. I always have the most pleasant experiences when I visit her office. I have experienced many procedures that she has performed with very little and many times no discomfort at all. I would highly recommend this office to everyone that wants to receive excellent dental care in a most pleasant atmosphere with an A+ office staff. Thanks TLC for over 20 years of great work!!!



Never Fear!!

Wow! What a relief to have a dentist who takes the time and patience to give you the numbing injection so slowly and gently it doesn't even hurt! I was terrified of the dentist when I was young because it was always painful and scary, but now I don't even have a twinge of anxiety because I know that with Dr. Rethmeyer and her wonderfully dedicated staff, I always have a pleasant experience - seriously!! I tell everyone who hates to go to the dentist that they need to go to mine; excellent in every detail! She even calls to see how I'm doing after a procedure! I trust Dr. Rethmeyer with every aspect of my care; from preventative suggestions to my bite guard which cured my TMJ! Not only do I love her great dentistry skills, but she is a beautiful Christian woman with a warm, cheery and friendly demeanor which means a great deal to me.


I was scheduled for my routine cleaning with Lori but I had some issues with other teeth bothering me. Dr. Rethmeyer took the time to check me out, xrays & history, etc., located problems and referred me to an endodontist. After a thorough exam, Lori cleaned my teeth and I was on my way. I am really grateful to them for taking the extra "unscheduled" time and giving me such great care! Thanks guys!!

Dr. Rethmeyer takes the time to sit with you on your very first appointment and talk about your concerns. They are very accomodating with appointments and the staff is very nice. I have even convinced my fiance to go to this office because of the doctors' exceptional attention with her patients.
