Suzanne A., Patient of Dr. Journee
I never had a “pleasant” experience at the dentist office in my first 32 years of life. I was always anxious and anticipating pain. I can laugh at that experience now. In the last 8 years, I have never had a bad experience with Dr. Wick. His bedside manner is second to none!
Ronnie H., Patient of Dr. Wick
Our family started coming to Shoal Valley Dental approximately 2 years ago. We have to say the change has been a positive experience. The staff at Shoal Valley is amazing. They make you feel welcomed and comfortable and are accommodating to us as patients. We highly recommend Dr. Journée and Shoal Valley Dental for your family too!
Knecht Family, Patients of Dr. Journée
As long time patients, we have found the staff and office to be friendly and professional. With an emphasis on explaining a procedure, it is calming and reassuring. A call from a Caribbean cruise with a tooth problem was handled smoothly!
