“I had not been to the dentist in over 10 years because I don’t like the dentists I have been to in the past. My first visit with Dr. Colleran’s office was overall a great experience for me. All the staff was friendly, worked great together and they are very knowledgeable and passionate about what they do which was refreshing. They were not pushy but made recommendations of future work needed with no pressure. I will continue going there but routinely as I should. I highly recommend his office!”
“I always get the best care possible when going to Dr. Colleran’s Office: great staff, great dental hygienist, great Dentist! I’ve had some complicated dental care needed which Dr. Colleran and his staff handled with outstanding competence and with very pleasant chair side manner. The same goes for the routine dental care. They are fantastic!”

“Well first off, I was referred to Dr. Colleran by my father, who is a patient of his. I have been very pleased with the orthodontic work that has been done on my father, so I figured it was worth it to go ahead on get myself in there… Could not be more pleased with the initial consultation, and very much look forward to the future! Great atmosphere, everyone is super friendly, and just an all around great experience.”
