My husband and I were on our way back from vacation and one of his crowns popped out. Dr. Thorup made an effort to fit him in and fix his crown ASAP. Dr. Thorup has been my dentist for this last year and I’ve always been impressed by his service. I was in awe of how he went above and beyond to help my husband (who wasn’t currently a patient). We will be long-time patients at this office.

I have seen Dr. David Thorup for dental work on my front teeth. My front teeth did not look very good during my growing up years and I was made fun of. This caused me to hide my teeth and not smile. Down the road when I became an adult, I consulted with Dr. Thorup about doing veneers to help make my front teeth look better and help me feel more confident with my smile. I decided to move forward with the treatment and I'm glad I did. Dr. Thorup went above and beyond what was expected to make sure I had the best results possible. I have never smiled bigger than I have since getting my veneers done with Dr. Thorup. I very highly recommend him!

Thank you Dr. Thorup and Dr. Theurer, You are hands down the best in every way possible! First visit, I was impressed with Dr. Theurer, his knowledge, attention to details as well as the options available as I needed 3 dental implants. Even though I met with other dentists prior, I knew he was the best and I’m not wrong plus he bought me a book which became one of my favorites. Dr Thorup who is in charge of my dental work is just brilliant and his assistant as well (she is awesome.. sorry I forgot your name... How dare I? I love you) I got 3 implants done and got my big beautiful smile back... my friends can’t tell the difference between the implants and my original teeth! Hands down the best and most affordable dental experience I ever had at the highest quality and professionalism! Everyone who works there is just awesome!
