"Yesterday I had two crowns replaced at Bright Young Smiles by Dr. Catherine. Being a patient of Dr. Catherine for ten years, plus or minus, I am very conscious of the excellent dental care that is provided. State of the art facility, extremely compassionate care and a most component staff made for a excellent experience. A very special “THANK YOU“ to Dr. Catherine, Priscilla and Caitlin for taking exceptional care of me."

"I always have a good experience with all the staff being so understanding, accommodating, and attentive to any concern that I have. I came in for a cleaning and have no been using my Invisalign, so was hesitant in addressing that issue to the dental hygienists, but ultimately did, and they were very kind and explained that it is sometimes to be self disciplined, but that they would help me get out track and start another round, and make me reach where I would like to be smile wise. Lovely staff!"

"One of my children slipped and fell and knocked his teeth pretty bad on a Saturday. Our dentist at the time didn't have weekend hours and Bright Young Smiles had great reviews and Saturday hours, we called and they took him right away. That was about 3 years ago. We switched all of our children here and have been going here ever since. They are really good people. My kids are always so happy to go to the dentist. My wife has nothing but great things to say after ever visit."

"Bright Young Smiles makes going to the dentist as enjoyable as possible. The ladies at the front are so organized, the office decor is amazing and it's always so clean. I've seen 4/5 Dentists and all were amazing. Like most, I have had my issues with dental care in this office and others, but Bright Young Smiles works to make everything as it should be. Both my husband and brother went 10+ years with no dental care, and this is the only place they will go. We love Bright Young Smiles!"

"I am extremely pleased with Bright Young Smiles. I will admit, I was never a fan of the dentist. Until I went to Bright Young Smiles. The staff at Bright Young Smiles is absolutely amazing and so friendly!! They make you feel so welcomed and your like a part of their family. Dr Gafney, Kendall, Cameron, Jen, Giselle, and everyone else that works there always has a smile on their face and just makes you feel at home. That’s why I have referred numerous friends to Bright Young Smiles. Not to mention their dental cleanings and other procedures I have had done are outstanding! Dr Gafney even called me after hours at nighttime to check on me at home after my dental procedure I had done and to see how I was feeling. You don’t see that often.. I actually look forward to going to the dentist now !! Danny Horkheimer"

"my wife and daughter have been using Bright Young Smiles for years, I only started within the last year or so... been a long time, but needed some pretty serious maintenance work; so far have 1 of 2 fillings replaced and have a temporary crown, replacement/permanent to come soon. the dentist and assistants made me comfortable, communicated often, and using much more advanced tools [it’s been a while--I admitted...] than I’m accustomed, took care of the tough work. I never was uncomfortable or frightened--and I wasn’t looking forward to having this work done... VERY thankful for my dentist and the assistants and front office group at Bright Young Smiles--really appreciate their work and professionalism!"

"Nice facility, friendly staff, good doctors. that been said I Like the address few things. I called his office to make an appointment for dental cleaning for my two young ones they said “they haven’t been here for a while they need an x-ray” I say “fine can you tell me how much is going to be I don’t have an insurance I’ll paid in cash” they say “cleaning with the x-rays will be $350” after everything said and done when the time comes to pay they say $450 I did not question Likely I have enough money to pay so I did, same visit when they finish the procedure they called me in the office to discuss other issues so long story short they came up with $1200 with my oldest and another $2500 for my youngest I made an appointment for the oldest one for Saturday at 10:30 am, they took her in at 10:40 she came out 10 after 11 so I paid $1200 for half an hour procedure so I’m trying to understand and justify this kind of a charge for what they did in half an hour? Is it The material ? Is it the hourly rate? Is it that particular job? In any case I did not see the value for what I paid, now I’m doubtful to go back there to spend another $2500 for my eight years old. Whoever I discuss this with their eyes wide open The question is if you don’t have a dental insurance a good one who can afford this also how much does it cost to remove a baby teeth ...?"

"We brought our 2 year old here after seeing a different dentist who we just didn't feel comfortable with for a number of reasons that I won't go into. Everyone at Bright Young Smiles were so friendly, knowledgable and more than happy to answer questions. As a first time parent I felt like I might have let my son down in the dental health department but they were very reassuring and I truly appreciated that! They really took the time to interact with him to try to make him feel as comfortable as possible and came up with fun ways to show him what they were doing so it would be less scary for him. We were so happy with our experience as well as the entire staff that we will now be going back to Bright Young Smiles for all of our sons future cleanings and dental procedures!!!"

"My new patient constellation was amazing! Even though I have cleanings every 6 months, Bright Young Smiles and staff found and showed me what my old dentist failed to find. The up to date technology with X-Rays and actually color pictures of my teeth revealed A LOT more than expected! I am so happy that I changed practices and will now be on my way to a healthy, new "Bright Young Smile" Thank you Dr. Michael Gaffney and staff for such a pleasant experience. D. Samsel"

"My 4 year old tripped and cracked a tooth in half which needed to be pulled. Needless to say, she’s a bit of a fraidy-cat so I knew this was going to be tough. The staff was so amazing and did everything they could to make her feel more comfortable. Dr. Young was so patient with her, even when she was in full meltdown mode. He made the process quick and easy and was really gentle with her. The dental assistant was amazing as well and had a nice reassuring smile the whole time. She’s so happy her "ouchy tooth" is gone now and is actually excited to go back for her first cleaning!!  Fantastic experience!"

"Don’t let the name fool you - adults can be patients here too. The dentists are a husband and wife team, Dr Young and Dr Young, hence the clever name. LOVE this practice! The office is clean, spacious, and inviting with a calming color scheme for nervous folks. The front desk staff were courteous and professional, and I only waited 5 minutes. The hygienist was very friendly and thorough, really taking the time to deep-clean when I haven’t been to a dentist in a while. Because I had several fillings many years ago, some are cracking and aging, and Dr. Catherine Young mapped out a priority list so I could anticipate what is likely to happen over the next several years. She was great and had a good chairside manner. I’m definitely having my husband and family move their care here."

"Bright Young Smiles is an incredible dental practice from top to bottom. Their facilities are first-rate, and the staff and of course both Drs. Young are friendly, knowledgeable, and extremely thorough. As a new patient switching from my previous dentist who I had been with for over 25 years, I was very impressed – and quickly at ease – with everyone there and can’t recommend them highly enough. Special thanks to Nicole for a great teeth cleaning, Dr. Catherine Young for the dental exam and treatment suggestions, and Angela for otherwise making the visit humorous and enjoyable."

"I just got my teeth cleaning at Bright Your Smile, just had to give 5 stars.As soon as I walked in, the receptionist knew who I was and welcomed me with friendly warm attitude. I waited for a lil while, I was called and got taken to the chair inside, and met Nicole the dental hygienist who took my x-ray and did the cleaning. She was very sweet and nice, made me feel relaxed and safe, and she was very knowledgeable and her work was amazing. I met Jennifer as well.After the cleaning, I met with Dr. Jared Young (he is a pediatric dentist), since Dr. Katherine is on the maternity leave... he was also very nice and the lady who was sitting at the computer was awesome.Everyone was so nice and warm, I need some tooth work to be done and I can’t wait to go back, then I will write more reviews.Not to forget, they gave me a goodie bag."

"Recently moved to the area and took my son there for his first dentist visit. I would say he had a positive experience and his dentist visits his school also and that was good for him. Ok so after a rough start he was able to see his dentist. Dr young was a gentleman and Took care of my sons tooth extraction and filling all with ease and worked hard to comfort him and reassure him thru the entire process. The staff was very polite and worked hard to ensure our satisfaction. I must say they earned our business, these guys are In for the long run with the care they provide and I definitely recommend them to anyone and everyone."

The office is immaculate and the equipment is state of the art. Once I realized Dr. Catherine saw adults I made appointments for both my husband and myself. We couldn't be happier.

"THANK YOU DR. CATHERINE YOUNG AND NICOLE. Thank you for giving me the hope of fixing my gum and dental issues and as a result fixing some of my overall health issues. Thank you for letting me feel hopeful and not embarrassed. Thank you Nicole for the thorough cleaning and patient explanations of my situation and how to carry out needed maintenance until our next meeting. Thank you for minimizing my anxiety and discomfort during everything: the exam, the e-rays, pictures and cleaning. Thank you Dr. Catherine for your patient and thorough explanations of my needs and options. I am anticipating a long, successive and enjoyable stay with your office. and to once again have a "bright although not so young smile" ! I will not hesitate to recommend your office to everyone I have opportunity to, Young and old alike !

"My children see Dr. Jared Young and they love going to the dentist! The office is fun, immaculate, and has so many personal touches to make your visit a great experience and keep the kids smiling (literally). The staff is wonderful and Dr. Young has excellent professional and interpersonal skills with the children he sees. Today, I had the opportunity to see Dr. Catherine Young for the first time as she provides dental care (all in one stop!) for adult patients. I've been at my previous dentist for 20+ years but I won't be going back. Dr. Catherine Young was fantastic, the staff was wonderful and everyone is always in a good mood. Great customer service, good prices, 5 stars!"

"Wonderful*** I was horrified to find out my little One has several cavities and i heard such good things about Dr young and maybe doing sedation instead of the other Dentists idea of Strapping my child to a board to keep them still, which i will never ever do. So her first visit, i am stressed, nervous and a mess thinking of the pain my little baby is going to feel from the almighty novacaine shot.....SHe got in the chair, the Dr is very calm showing her all the tools and just talking to her...Now the moment for the shot...they put the jelly to start numbing her mouth, so far s good...then they had her close her eyes and he injected her....she didnt even move, she didnt even feel it, i watch her face and her body , she never knew she just got a shot! the weight was lifted off my shoulders a bit after that. He continued to fix 3 of her teeth, being a 4 year old she did start to get ansy but for her first visit and to have 3 cavities filled with no pain is worth its weight in gold to me, this visit was to be the one that really defined all her future visits to any dentist, if it went bad she would never want to go again as i remember as a child . BUT Dr Young was great, i think dental technology has come a long way and the young dentists have gained more skill and patience especially with children. So Thank you Dr Young for taking care of my pride and joy...her only complaint was that she just doesnt like what he calls Mr Bumpy :) I think it more annoys her than hurts her :) We'll be back to finish the rest......... Well we went back to do the rest and once agin my little 4 year old was not scared for life :) As recently as today we found two more spots...I cant bare to watch so I send my wife,,,apparently dr jared didn't even have to use novacaine and was able to fix both teeth without a flinch of pain from her. The joy of my day is when my little one calls me and says daddy I am OK everythings done:) and I ask did it hurt r u ok and she replies no and I even got a goody bag!!!! so this would be the 6 or 7th procedure on my cavity prone child no matter all I have tried and not once has she ever been upset of felt an ounce of pain. this is worth the world to me and now her experience for the dentist r forever changed because dr jared and his team understand how to make the kids feel good and what to show them and what not to show them. So thank U again for taking care of my Princess!!!!!"
