What To Expect
When you step through our doors, you’ll be welcomed with warm smiles and a bright, updated space. After checking you in for your appointment, we’ll give you an office tour and help you feel right at home.
Then we’ll take you back to a soothing operatory. Kick back and watch your favorite show from Netflix, Hulu, or Disney+ while we gently clear away plaque and tartar from your teeth. Our hygienists are also adept at identifying areas of concern, such as gum inflammation, and will give you personalized advice on how to maintain a healthy oral hygiene routine.
Finally, we will conduct a comprehensive oral exam to detect any potential issues that may require treatment.
Dr. Cline or Dr. Hayes will examine your teeth, gums, and mouth, looking for any signs of potential issues and answer any of your questions.
Our goal is to ensure that you feel welcome, informed, and comfortable throughout the process so you can enjoy a healthy, beautiful smile for years to come.

"I am a new patient. I was impressed with the facilities and my dental hygienist. She was thorough, informative and kind. Dr. Cline is a great dentist. She too was thorough and made you feel as a patient that your dental care was paramount. She took the time to answer any and all questions. I’m glad I chose them for my dental needs."
“My family and I have been coming to see Dr. Cline and her incredible staff since 2002. The level of care and compassion that they show is above and beyond any other dental practice that I have been to in my 40+ years of seeking dental care. Being someone with increased anxiety at the dentist makes it difficult to go at times. Cline Dental has always given me the best service and put my mind at ease whenever I am there.”
"The whole dentist office was so extremely nice. Caitlin was amazing as the hygienist. I have a lot of anxiety about going to the dentist and she put me at ease and did such a great job throughout my cleaning. Dr. Hayes was also so nice. I for sure will be coming back."
"The staff is very friendly, knowledgeable, and care about your concerns. Dr. Cline is truly just the best! I'm in the middle of the dental implant process and they have taken the time to answer all my questions and put any anxiety to rest. I had previously switched dentists due to my insurance changing, but I learned my lesson and went back to Dr. Cline. I'm happy to pay out of pocket for the exceptional care!"
"I hadn’t been to the dentist in a while and was really nervous to set up my first appointment—especially because I’ve never enjoyed going to the dentist. However every single person was so welcoming and kind and made me feel so comfortable. Special shout-out to Courtney for being so chill and fun 🙌"
"Dr. Cline is Amazing! I have been seeing her for well over 10 years and she has done some major work on my teeth. I highly recommend this office for your routine care or major dental work. The staff is kind and respectful. Never any surprises when it comes to charges or billing! A+ in my book!!!!"
