“10/10 recommend trying out this dentist! Dr. Hanigofsky is amazing! The ladies at the front desk are also so nice. I’m always greeted with a smile and taking back almost immediately when I arrive. They make going to the dentist so much easier!”


– Samantha Harvey

"Wow! Painless Injections! That is only the beginning of this excellent office. I have had exceptional dentistry from Dr. Powell and his team for thirty years. Through their oral hygiene care instructions, the newest and improved techniques and the highest quality products, I have maintained excellent dental health that has, in turn, affected my total health! Come enjoy awesome dentistry with me!"

– Sylvia F.

"I had grafting done for the first time by Dr. Powell and the process was easy and painless. When I returned home I began reading about others' experiences with grafting and noticed that what I was going through was much different. While others were saying this was the worst pain of their life, I had no pain at all. I was just so happy to not be in pain and will get my other grafts done by Dr. Powell!"


– C. Lee

"My family and I have been patients of Dr. Powell's for almost 20 years. The dental care is outstanding and the atmosphere is warm and friendly. Dr. Powell and his entire team treat us like part of their family. If you are looking for the highest quality of work and the best possible experience in dental care, choose the team at Dr. Powell's practice."

– K. Kirby

"I’ve been a patient at Dr Powell's office for probably close to 35 years. Dr Hanigofsky has become a valuable member of this great team. I didn’t think anyone could mesh so well.. so easily.. but I’ve been proven wrong. He is personable and well mannered. He values the PATIENT as an individual and recognizes that each person has unique circumstances and works to accommodate any needs as best as can be expected."


– Samuel Isaac

"Best experience that I've ever had at a dentist. Dr Hanigofsky and his staff are a true team of perfectionists, if I had to describe the work that they deliver. They are extremely personable and friendly. They create an atmosphere that totally puts you at ease. After years of going with whatever course of action my previous dentists wanted to take over the years, I was surprised at how Dr. Powell and his staff were extremely interested in educating me on my choices. I am thrilled at how my teeth turned out! I can tell you that I am finally smiling without being self-conscious. I recommend them highly to anyone who needs great dental care."


– Lou Hoffman

"At 66 years old I can say that I received the best dental examination in my entire life, I never experienced all that care before from any dentist, Dr. H is amazing."


– Johnny Stiltner

"Just in for a cleaning and had a couple of cracks in a tooth - crown needed. They were able to get it done same day and I’m thrilled!"


– Susan Owen

“Dr. Powell and his capable staff have taken care of me and my family for years now. They gave my husband a beautiful smile again since his teeth had been damaged in childhood. Since then, they have been caring for me and my four children and son-in-law. Dr. Powell and his staff are always willing to fit us in when we’re having problems. I trust them 100% with my family’s care.”
