What Patients
Are Saying

“When I moved to Flagstaff, I really needed to find a good dentist. After my first visit to the office), I met Dr. Lerud and the staff and I was really impressed! I've been to see him a couple of times now and I feel so comfortable and welcome in their office. Dr. Lerud was really gentle with my teeth and made sure I was okay while he worked on them. By far my best dental experience and I would highly recommend going to see them!”

Dr. Bacon and Dr. Lerud are very professional and take their time answering any concerns. I highly recommend this place for anyone who is looking for a great dentist.”

“Dr. Bacon and the staff work well together. They are fun, humorous, kind and generous with their time and talent. The atmosphere is light and caring. Dr. Bacon is obviously devoted to making sure all are trained in excellence and are highly knowledgeable of their roles/jobs. Having my teeth worked on is awful for me, but I find everyone there to be gentle and understanding.”
