    Dr. Dane was great! He made sure my primary concerns were addressed even when my appointment was for a different tooth. He is a kind, knowledgeable and skilled dentist who made the time to answer all my questions. And most importantly, he provided me with patient centered care when he adjusted the care plan to provide the best care for the me. I am impressed and grateful to have Dr. Dane as my dentist.

    I definitely want to see Dr. Brar, he’s been my dentist for years!


    I love that you accept Care credit and make it easy for me to come it.


    I can’t wait to see you again at my next appointment!


    Thank you so much for thoroughly explaining my benefits to me; nobody has ever done that for me.” “ I love the staff at point family dentistry. They are so warm and welcoming. They always take great care of my entire family.


    With every visit, I'm impressed by the efficiency and warmth of all staff and care providers. I always feel I'm being cared for and treated as an individual.


    I struggle a lot with dental anxiety. Here, I have only been met with kindness and generosity. First of all, I was not expecting to sit in a massage chair. This definitely helped in easing my anxiety, but it truly was the understanding and friendliness of who was taking care of my teeth that made the most difference. Dr. Satbir Brar is so kind, and he only strives to do the best work. I am honestly so relieved to have found a dentist that I feel comfortable and confident with. Keep it up!!!


    I have been using Point Family Dentistry for many years. Through THREE dentists, I have had great service and would recommend to anyone. Before Point, I had damage done by another dentist. Point fixed that. I have used them for crowns and implants. Listen guys, you should try these guys. One thing you DON'T want is to have an inexperienced dentist drilling in your teeth.


    Love it!! Clean office and super friendly people
