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!

Gone is the fear and loathing of a dental visit! The entire staff of 417 Smiles is upbeat, friendly and go the extra mile to make you comfortable — from the office staff to hygenists to the dentists. Dr. Nathan Bauer and his hygenists respect your time, answer all your questions and deliver reliable, lasting dental solutions.

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.

What a great group of people. Everyone in the office is extremely professional. The Bauers are both wonderful dentists. Very reasonable and non-judgmental. Very gentle in personality and with my teeth and gums.

I moved to Springfield, MO in 2004 and asked a friend for a recommendation for a dentist. She recommended Dr. Young and his staff. They are now called 417 Smiles. They meet all my dental needs and I’ve never wanted to go anywhere else. I consider them friends. Their friendliness and professionalism can’t be beat and they are quick to meet my needs when something unexpected comes up. Thank you, 417 Smiles!
