"I like fancy teeth, so I go to Dr. Weller. In my life I have had so many dentists and so many bad Dentist experiences - until I started going to Dr. Weller. I have been visiting Dr. Weller for the past five years and in that time, I have only had ONE major dental issue, a partial overlay on a molar. One of my molars had decayed so badly that I was on the verge of needing a crown. He was able to do the partial overlay, save my tooth and my tooth has been problem free for over four years. I get my teeth cleaned 4X a year (because I love it!) and I don't mind paying for it. I don't know what other offices charge, and I know Weller is more expensive, but I cannot imagine that it is that much more? I pay $95 for teeth cleaning, I spend no more than $800 annually with Weller - how much do you spend on going to dinner? Or your gym membership? Are your teeth not worth that? Mine certainly are. I adore my hygenist, she is the best. The one thing about Weller is that he is a big fan on Veneers - he believes in them. He will more than likely suggest them to you. You can always say "no" just as I have for five years now - even though I know I need them :( Final word: Clean, beautiful office, great staff (Tina and Jamie), great hygenist, great dentist. a++ care. On the pricey side but one of the best dentists in the city - and that is according to other dentists too. I have visited other dentists for a "second opinion" and sure enough I always hear "Jeff is a great dentist"."
"When you want your teeth to be the healthiest and best looking they can be, Dr. Weller and his team of trained hygienists are my top choice. Dr Weller is an expert at also evaluating the functionality of your teeth-- how your bite affects the wear of your teeth and how to create a stronger foundation for them. The hygienists-- Jen and now Grace-- are extremely thorough in evaluating gum line, teeth, treatment and care. They also employ the latest technologies to combat bad bacteria, plaque, and other issues. I wouldn't go anywhere else!"
"I've been going to Dr. Weller for a few years now and he's fantastic! I trust Dr. Weller completely with my dental health. You can talk to him about any concern (for me: gum grafting, orthodontics, cosmetic) and know that you're getting the best care and advice, whether he performs the work himself or refers you to a specialist that he trusts. My dental hygienist, Jackie is truly amazing, too!!! She is so friendly, upbeat and makes you feel right at home. Not much more I can ask for from a dental office. Thank you!"
"Dr. Weller has been my dentist for the past 2 yrs and he is absolutely wonderful. He is attentive and really cares about your teeth. I recommend him to anyone that wants a beautiful smile."
"I ended up at this office on the recommendation of my periodontist, and have never looked back. This is hands down the best team I have ever seen. Dr. Weller has always taken the time to thoroughly and honestly explain procedures and options to me - plus his work is simply beautiful. Tina, the office coordinator, has literally made me feel like I am their only patient. Changed my entire view of dentistry."
