Dr. Bridgedanne Murphy is in Novi on Grand River. She has the best hygentists in the area very gentle and kind. She has the latest in technology and a great chair-side manner. Her staff is wonderful too and her waiting room is very comfortable. I found her about 8 years ago when I was looking for "gentle dental" and she caters to scardycats like me. Good Luck.

You should try Dr. Brian Andress, he is so good. I have been going to him since I moved to michigan 16 1/2 years ago, and I take my kids there too. I have taken them since they were very little........and they are now 15 and 13.
He has a lot of patience and will answer any questions you may have.
He is located in Novi.
His address is: Dr. Brian Andress, DDS.
Williamsburg Office Building
40255 Grand River, Suite 200
Novi, MI. 48375
You should try him out, he is very good and like I said before we have been going to him for many years.

i am a dental hygienist in the Novi area. I have been working at the office of Dr. Andress and Elfring for over 5 yrs. A lot of the patients have been patients for quite some time and appreciate the updated technology. Dr. Elfring is well known around the Novi area. His wife was on the school board for the last 10 yrs or so.
want to check out the website.....go to www.novidentists.com

Hi C.. I, like you, do not enjoy the dentist and waited a decade to see one again. I decided that I needed to pull myself together and make a good example for my baby boy. I called Commerce Village Dentists and made my 1st appt. I told them I was extremely terrified of the dentist and to give me someone who could understand and be gentle. I got Dr. Hudson and was so pleased, that I made another appt before I left the office. So far (now I've visited 3 times) all the staff have been very kind. Good luck to you!

Good Morning C.!!
I HIGHLY recommend Dr. Balestrino. He does wonderful "pain free" dentistry. He is also very current on the newest dentistry technology, and uses lasers and all kinds of cool things to help meet your dentistry needs. There is rarely any waiting in the office. (You barely have a chance to choose a magazine and sit before they are ready for you!!) The hygenists in the office are warm and friendly AND they do a great job!
The only thing I would make sure you were aware of, is that because he is so "current" with his technology.. there are somethings that insurance may not cover all of. Like for fillings. Delta Delta only pays for the old silver fillings, while Dr. Balestrino uses the new fillings that are the same color as your teeth. So he may be concidered a little pricey. But he is definately WELL WORTH IT!!
My kids LOVE going to the dentist.... they actually look forward to it! So I hope that you will consider Dr. Balestrino!! His # is ###-###-####. His office is located on 14 mile Rd. Between M-5 and Haggerty, across from Hillers.
