"This was the best experience with a dentist I've ever had. I had an implant done and was expecting a lot of pain. I had no pain at all. It was so refreshing to have a dentist who cares about his patients. I highly recommend Dr. Orme and his staff at Southwest Dental Care."

- Sheryl B.

"I'm the kind of person who likes a real explanation of what's happening, even if I don't really understand half of it. Dr. Orme went the extra mile to explain everything in a casual and personable way without "dumbing it down". The office space is modern and fresh, and the staff is welcoming and characterful."

- John D.

"I worked with Dr. Orme in the Dominican Republic recently on a humanitarian trip. I watched him work hard every day at making the people feel good, creating an experience, as well as teaching those around him. He makes patients and co-workers feel good. He's positive, very upbeat, and I would recommend him strongly!!"

- Spencer C.

"He is the best dentist I have ever been to. He listens and only does what you want done without pressure. Very informative without the lecture. Dr. Orme and his staff are very friendly."

- Matthew H.
