Patient ReviewsMy experience is always wonderful at HollowBrook. Glenda is the BEST hygienist ever and the doctors are great. I wouldn’t go anywhere else!

Patient ReviewsSuch a great and friendly atmosphere. The front desk always greets you with a smile, the dental assistants are always so friendly and gentle, and the doctors are very caring and knowledgeable. We feel in very good hands here.

Patient ReviewsI’ve had braces twice [through other clinics] and during the impression process on multiple occasions have experience gagging, choking and pain from the wrong sized trays. Judy was very skilled in taking impressions. She made it seem so simple to get the job done without discomfort. Judy, you left a lasting impression!

Patient ReviewsAs usual, my experience was excellent. I was well taken care of by Dr. Smith and Jamie. I have patronized this practice for over 15 years and would not think of going to any other dentist.

Patient ReviewsAlways friendly and the personnel are very qualified. I’m always very satisfied.

Patient ReviewsDr. Smith has the best office staff I have ever encountered. Every interaction I have had with them, they are kind and caring. Dr. Smith and Dr. Erlander truly care about their patients and their comfort during the visit. I would recommend this office to anyone!

Patient ReviewsI have one problem tooth. I knew Dr. Erlander would get all the facts and then make the right decision. The guy is really bright and I am always confident he will make the best decision.

Patient ReviewsI was very happy to have a great experience at HollowBrook Family Dentistry yesterday. Jamie always does a great job with cleaning and Dr. Erlander checked my teeth afterward. I got some great information about brushing in general and a better tool for cleaning my night guard. Thanks a lot!

Patient ReviewsThanks for taking good care of my teeth. Always a pleasant visit.

Patient ReviewsThe staff, facility and Doc Tom make HollowBrook my favorite dental facility.

Patient ReviewsI have been a patient for about 15 years… more than happy with the service and professionalism. I highly recommend the practice!

Patient ReviewsI always enjoy talking to all the staff when I have a dental appointment. They are caring and make the visit a joy. All my questions are answered. Have recommended HollowBrook to several friends.

Patient ReviewsI love going to HollowBrook Family Dentistry. Everyone is always kind, patient, gentle and professional. I get excellent care.

Patient ReviewsIncredibly gifted dental practitioners, dentists and staff included. State-of-the-art technology with ever-expanding modalities and regular continuing education and training. Always compassionate, non-hurried care, allowing extra time to inquire about the patient personally. Pain is always managed with frequent inquiries about the patient’s comfort level. Finally, Dr. Smith’s incredible wit and humor are so entertaining and delightful!

Patient ReviewsPainless. Awesome! Dr. Smith is great.

Patient ReviewsDr. Smith has been a dental savior. From fixing my gap to always making me smile. Thank you!

Patient ReviewsI chipped my front tooth over the weekend. The team worked me in and Dr. Smith had it beautifully repaired by Monday afternoon!

Patient ReviewsDr. Smith successfully extracted a loose front tooth and replaced it with a sturdy walrus tusk. Sheila efficiently cleaned everything and accepted my marriage proposal. All in all, a pretty good visit.

Patient ReviewsEveryone at HollowBrook Family Dentistry is the most professional, highly trained group I have ever been with. From the first greeting to the end, each staff member is extremely proficient and knowledgeable. My last visit was for a crown and it was incredible to have the procedure done in one day! Throughout the entire procedure, I was very comfortable and had no pain the day-of or the next day. The fit is perfect! Hats off to Dr. Erlander and Judy and the entire staff at HollowBrook. Thank you!

Patient ReviewsWhen I was suffering from the worst pain ever up the side of my head, HollowBrook squeezed me into their already full schedule and quickly relived my pain and the underlying cause. What a team – professional, kind and always learning.

Patient ReviewsThis was my first visit to this dental location and the service was fantastic! Wonderful customer service, friendly and relaxing. Thank you all!

Patient ReviewsThe staff at HollowBrook Family Dentistry was very friendly and caring. Pleasant and professional environment and clean facility.

Patient ReviewsWe have been using HollowBrook Family Dentistry since Dr. Smith bought the practice from Dr. Ernster. Dr. Smith and more recently, Dr. Erlander, have been our family dentists for 20 years. All of our kids have had their dental work done at this office and we have referred everyone we know to HollowBrook. The entire staff treats us as family. I cannot say enough wonderful things about this dental office.

Patient ReviewsExcellent, excellent, excellent… Need I say more?

Patient ReviewsI was happy with both service and results of the checkup. Thanks for doing your best for me!

Patient ReviewsMy experience was absolutely wonderful with both Jamie and Dr. Eric and everyone else I encountered. I appreciate the gentle care and the instructional information.

Patient ReviewsI think I’ve just found my new dentist! From the first phone call, I have been quite impressed with HollowBrook Family Dentistry. The facility is light, bright, modern and clean. The reception staff were friendly and efficient. The doctor and assistant were both personable and professional. They made sure I understood exactly what’s going on with my teeth and what my options are. We can’t see what’s in our mouths and only know when it doesn’t feel right or hurts. We have to trust our dentist’s assessment and judgement and HollowBrook Family Dentistry has inspired just that kind of trust. At my old dentist, I often felt like I was at a car dealership being pressured into buying the extended warranty! Not so at HollowBrook. I felt very much at ease and that’s saying a LOT for a dentist office!

Patient ReviewsWe have been long, long time patients and have nothing but the best and most fun experiences one can have going to the dentist. The HollowBrook dentists, hygienists and staff are all over-the-top friendly and super competent and up-to-date on all the latest dentistry. Highly recommend!

Patient ReviewsThank you, Dr. Thomas and Josie, for meeting me today to fix a broken crown. I wasn’t even fetching a pail of water…! Happy Labor Day! You guys are awesome! It was very nice to meet the new doc. He’s a great addition to the Hollow Brook family!

Patient ReviewsHad a great dental visit the other day with Dr Smith. He did a slight adjustment to my denture, which really helped. I always feel well taken care of and cared about. The staff is very friendly and kind as well. Great dental office. I don’t ever want to go anywhere else.

Patient ReviewsI was treated by the ladies at the front desk as if I mattered and that put me at ease. With my age and dental issues, kindness means so much to me. The doctor introduced himself as Eric; this young man impressed me greatly and his sensitivity to my needs made all the difference. This office is my choice. My search for an outstanding dental professional is over. Thank you, HollowBrook Family Dentistry!

Patient ReviewsI had a good teeth cleaning. Glenda is always great. It’s more like catching up with a friend than teeth cleaning! And Dr. Erlander is always helpful and thorough. It’s hard to have anything but a positive experience at HollowBrook Dental.

Patient ReviewsI used to dislike going to the dentist. Now I’m happy to go! All of the staff at HollowBrook are friendly and kind and everyone tries to make you feel comfortable. I’m so happy my family is building a great relationship with these dentists.

Patient ReviewsI believe HollowBrook Family Dentistry is the best that I have had in my 90-year life. Both Dr. Smith and Jamie are great.

Patient ReviewsYesterday I had my regular dental check-up with X-rays. Jamie, the dental hygienist who served me, was friendly and in no way made me uncomfortable. Dr. Smith checked my teeth afterwards and recommended a procedure which I knew was coming, but put on no pressure. I am confident that the services I receive at Hollowbrook are preserving my own teeth for my lifetime. And they are provided by staff I enjoy interacting with.” William

Patient ReviewsThis is the most fun I’ve ever had at “the dentist.” If more dentists were like you the world would be a cavity-free place.

Patient ReviewsIt is with happiness that I tell you that today was the first time I visited a dental office relaxed and calm. I feel so much warmth and kindness from all of you.
Mary Jane

Patient ReviewsThank you so much for the wonderful care you always give us. What used to be the dreaded dental visit is now a no-fear experience. It feels wonderful to partner in confidence with all of you in our dental health.
Diana, Marty and Jessica

Patient ReviewsThanks so much for replacing my cracked crown. We all agree that switching to your office was a great move for us.
Cindy, Steve and Noah

Patient ReviewsAll I can say is THANK YOU so very, very much. My crowns fit and feel great. Norm now has become a nuisance, constantly asking, “Don’t my teeth look great?”, which of course they do.
Norm and Darlene

Patient ReviewsThank you for fixing my front tooth! I appreciate all of you greatly. You almost make going to the dentist a pleasure. (Is that an oxymoron, or what?)

Patient ReviewsThank you for being so thoughtful when I came to your office with back pain. Your kindness in allowing me to lie down before my appointment meant I was pain-free by the time I arrived home.

Patient ReviewsI don’t snore anymore! From the very first night!


Patient ReviewsSince using my new sleep appliance, I have so much more energy during the day. I didn’t realize how much my snoring was affecting my whole life.


Patient ReviewsMy reflux is non-existent now. That’s just amazing to me.
Thanks, Hollowbrook!


Patient ReviewsMy blood pressure is so much better that I don’t even need medication anymore.
