family dentistry 

My family and I have been long term customers of 417 Smiles. Dr. Stephen, Dr. Sara, Dr. Nathan, and the entire staff are great. I would highly recommend them for patients of all ages. Top notch dentists and excellent customer service.

Drs Sara, Steve and their staff are kind, caring, patient and reassuring for all ages of patients. They recommend only what is needed and offer you different possibilities for care. Highly recommend 417 Smiles!!

I highly recommend Dr. Sara Bauer and the Dental Assistant, Kaitlin. They both were absolutely magnificent. Everything during the procedure went wonderful. The whole experience was tremendous.

Best dentist and team ever. I see Dr Nathan Bauer and you hardly realize he is working on you, I would highly recommend him for those folks who fear dentists or discomfort. The whole staff makes you feel like family.

– Kyle D.

The entire staff treats me like family! I look forward to all my visits and know I will be treated with kindness and respect! On top of that, my dentist and hygienist are skilled, knowledgeable professionals.

From founder Dr. Stephen Young to both Drs. Bauer and the many long-time team members, this practice has been staffed with top echelon professionals at all levels, and has never wavered in their outstanding dedication to patients and their well-being. Many of these people are like family to me and my own family after 30+ years of care. You will not be disappointed to walk in their door.

I rarely write reviews for anything unless I am compelled by either really poor or really exceptional service, product or place. In this case I am happy to give 417 Smiles and Dr Bauer’s team 5 stars and more for their excellent dental services. First of all they really do know who you are and are careful to explain things to you in a way you can understand. No surprises. Terry has been our family dental hygienist for about 20 years (bless her heart!) and is like family. I can’t say enough about the care they give you. If you are a bit frightened to see a dentist, don’t be, just give them a call and I promise you will be happy you did!

Terri and Jennifer are excellent hygienists and Dr. Bauer is outstanding too! I have been going to this practice for 3 years and couldn’t be happier! Pain-free and always pleasant!

– Jennifer Boyd

I am extremely happy with the service and friendliness they gave me and my needs. I started having some major teeth/gum pain and did not have dentist I normally used. So a friend requested I try her dentist because they are very caring, friendly and would calm my fears. Well she was absolutely right! I will be going back to 417Smiles from here on out. I cannot help but spread the news of how great they are to my friends and family. From the receptionist all the way up to Dr. Stephen Young the entire practice is A++

– Stacy S.

Simply amazing! I have only been twice now but a huge difference compared to my old dentist. My first visit was to establish care and get a cleaning, i learned things i never knew. Also i had a issue chewing on one side Dr. Sara looked at it and fixed me right there. Turnes out it was just my bite off from a previous filling i got elsewhere. Also Dr. Sara saw my daughter and was amazing with her as well. My most recent visit was to get a root canal and again Dr. Sara was amazing always checking with me to make shure i was doing ok and when it was done she showed me what she did (i love that cause i like to know how things work). The entire staff is wonderful as well. I would recommend this place to anyone looking for a better dental experience.
