What our valued Patients have to say...

    I felt very cared for.

    Joanie N.
  • Very Impressive Service!

    I was impressed at how friendly and caring the staff is! I used the coupon for the initial exam which was a very good deal! I haven’t had any real work done yet but so far, so good!

    Inga S.
  • The Middle Stage of an Implant

    Great care and Knowledge, No pain or discomfort.

    Cynthia Margaret M.
  • Great first impression!

    Originally I had an appointment a week away for a cleaning and initial exam. However I had some pain while at work and called the office. They worked me in within an hour. I got my cleaning, exam, and problem tooth taken care off in one sitting. I found the Staff to be courteous and competent in their duties. I felt like they appreciated my business, I definately appreciated their care. Dr. Cotty has a great practice with an excellent team.

  • It was an excellent visit!

    All of the personnel were professional with their interaction with me. Cherry did a wonderful job working on my teeth. She answered all of my questions and was very informative through out the whole proceedure.

  • Crown work.

    A huge shout out to Dr Cotty & his team at Denistry 2000! I needed a crown which I was not looking forward to. I put the appt off for months because my last crown from a different dentist was a bit tedious! Needless to say, all my anxiety was for naught! Dr Cotty & his team had my new crown in place within 4 hours! Amazing! I went back a week later to shave off a small high spot & got in when it worked with my schedule! Denistry 2000 Rocks!

  • Crown Replacement

    I am very pleased with the work that Dr. Cotty’s office did, replacing a old crown that was giving me trouble. It was not an easy task. But he and his staff worked in a very professional manner, always sensitive to my needs. He and his staff are top-notch, professionally, and employ modern techniques and equipment.

  • Aug 20th visit

    I appreciate the staff of Dentistry 2000. Even during times of computer/internet issues, they still remained calm, cool and collected. I recommend Dr Cotty to anyone that I hear of that is looking for a dentist. I just wish he were a Delta Dental Provider so I would not have to pay out of pocket at times!

    Elizabeth T.
  • I can finally smile

    I had not been to a dentist in 25 years. And wanted a nice smile. Dr. Cotty has just started on my teeth giving me two crowns on my top 2 front teeth, I believe my 8 and 9 as they call them. I can’t stop looking in the mirror at my teeth. His entire staff are amazing. Thank you and will see you again soon for more work.
