“Total professionals, experienced, and just a pleasure. I’ve needed a lot of dental work and the team at Dr. Ticker’s have all been wonderful. Very gentle and accommodating.

“I have been a patient of Dr. Tickner’s for about seven years. Prior to going to him, I spent over 30 years with severe TMJ problems. During those 30 years I had several night guards made that all proved ineffective. Dr. Tickner made a small device that I wear in place of a night guards. As soon as I started wearing the device, the pain stopped. I had some crowns replaces with no problems. I have my teeth cleaned by Holley and Debbie who are both excellent. Everyone who works in the office is friendly, professional, and accommodating. I drive about 25 miles for my appointments and would not consider changing dentists. The Tickner Tooth Team is the BEST!” by Adrienne L. (February 21, 2014)
