When I came here, my teeth were literally falling out. My gums were receding and bleeding. There crowns were ... all these crowns were just dropping out of my hand. It's amazing. There's no pain now. I can eat. I can smile. That's important because I like to laugh, and I like to smile. This is a ...

This is a terrific practice, very professional. All of the support staff is phenomenal, and I'm very impressed with Dr. Sortman and how he approaches things. I think he's a very, very competent dentist. I've had a lot of dental issues my whole life, so I'm very pleased with the work that he has ...

I had a tooth that broke off, my upper molar, that actually broke right off because it had a large filling and the filling was just old. He had a hard time getting it out, but he did a good job. Then I had a crown put on, too, in my lower area. I like the design of the building. It's kind of a fung ...

Well, what encouraged me to go for dentures, I suppose is age. Like a lot of people, as you get older you teeth kind of fall apart and when I looked in the mirror, I said I was looking at Alfred E Neumen without teeth so I decided I better go and see about getting dentures. Now I got them and I'm very happy with them. Matter of fact, most of the time I forget I even got them in. Sometimes I have to wake up in the middle of the night, "Oh my gosh, I forgot to take my ...

I've had partials put in on my front four teeth. I have no molars back here, so it's wearing down my front teeth. They did an excellent job in making the front teeth look better. I've had bad experiences with dentists before, when I was younger. They were bad experiences. Since I've come here it's been a real good atmosphere. I like the building and the way they've got things set up. The dental assistant talks to you, relaxes you. The chairs are always turned towards an ...

Well I had this tooth and it was there but it was back and I had kind of a pumpkin look and he made me a tooth over the other tooth. You know I'm 87 years old and I've still got all my teeth. When he started right in Fruitport he was my doctor, and when he moved over here I came over here. But I like Dr. Sortman, he's my dentist and he's been really good to me. Me and my husband both come here, my son comes here. Because it is so friendly and they do a good job. In fact, ...

My teeth were given implants, some of them, and they had to have invisible bridges to secure them. No one sees them, no one is aware of them, and they're wonderful. I have frown lines, which I have been working on for sixty years, because I didn't dare show my teeth. Now, I can finally show my teeth. I can finally smile and finally talk and be with people without worrying. I just can't wait to smile. I tell them to come here because the service is so fantastic and Dr. ...

He had (inaudible 00:00:03) he put a bridge in, he put a cap in down here and then they came out and he had to put them all back in again, and he was super. Didn't hurt me either. My teeth were bad, these up here were bad, my old bridge was coming out so he had to figure out how he could put a new one in. Then they went and put those implants up in my mouth to make the teeth stay. He does good work and he's honest, and he's friendly. The staff is friendly, everybody's ...

My appointment was scheduled very quickly, I had the best first time exam I have ever had. The Dr. was not pushy on me scheduling for my next service. The answered all my questions. The atmosphere was fabulous.

A very enjoyable experience, I leave knowing exactly where I stand with my dental care and what my insurance covers. The staff and service are amazing and I would highly recommend them to anyone searching for their last dentist. Thank you Community Shores Dental.

My first dental appointment at Community Shores Dental was awesome. The women at the front desk were very friendly, and professional. My dental hygenist was wonderful. She was also very professional, and made me feel at ease. Both her, and my dentist thoroughly explained everything they were doing, or going to do. I was very impressed, and would recommend anyone who is looking for a dentist to go here!
