It is a wonderful group of professionals. I feel like a family member when I go in. Dr Busch and all of her staff have worked so hard to get my teeth healthy and looking beautiful. They also do everything possible to calm my anxiety during procedures.

From the receptionist to the caring treatment from Dr. Elward this was the best dental experience I have ever had in 60 years. We still have more treatment to go. But so far so good and I would recommend this office to anyone looking for a place to call home concerning dental needs. My impression is these are people you can trust and that is so important to me. It will not be long before a patient has to wait a month to get into 8118 Dental.

8118's office and Dr. Elward are the first dentist that has been able to compassionately manage my extreme anxiety and help me get the care I need. They are incredibly kind and patient. I appreciate them very much. Despite being nomadic and moving frequently, I will do anything humanly possible to return here for care...even if it requires flying in for a visit.

Always friendly and accommodating. I get cold in offices, and they always have clean blankets if I need one. My teeth look and feel amazing. And who doesn’t want to watch turtles while sitting in a dentist chair?

I totally appreciate the full explanations for my routine and emergency dental care visits. The doctors and their assistants check in about my comfort several times, which is both reassuring and 'comfortable.' Great team. Totally recommend.

I needed some extensive dental work done. I contacted 8118 Dental Professionals for a consultation. They were very professional and courteous. I felt very confidant after the consultation that they were "The Dental Professionals" i wanted to work with. I was treated fantastic on each visit. They made you feel very comfortable and genuinely cared about your issues. The work was done with great care and concern. I have had a lot of dental work done and this was nearly pain free. I highly recommend 8118 Dental Professionals.

I've been going to this office for 14 years and have always had a great experience! All the dentists as well as the hygienists are very knowledgeable and up to date on the latest techniques. During the coronavirus, I've felt totally safe since I know they added new air filters in the whole building . Also, in each patient bay they have portable air filters.

I get pretty stressed when going to the dentist because it takes extra time to numb my mouth for a procedure. Dr Bush is extremely patient and a fantastic listener. Gabby is THE BEST partner to Dr B. Great team - they put me at ease and make me laugh with their playful banter and silly jokes.

I highly recommend 8118 Dental Professionals if you are suffering from TMD/TMJ. Dr. Busch was very helpful and I left with more knowledge about the disorder. She really cares about her patients and makes you feel optimistic by giving you support and words of encouragement. Brenda and Gabby were amazing with great and welcoming personalities. I have only been back 2 times and I feel like I have been a patient there for years.

I love Dr Tana and all of the staff at 8118 Dental- as someone with true dentist phobia, I deeply appreciate their care, concern, and empathy for me as a patient. They take wonderful care of their patients, and also do great work! (They also have fantastic Covid safety protocols in place, so if you are concerned about your health and safety, don’t worry, they have it down!!)
