What our Patients are Saying

We think the service, staff, etc are great! We always feel very comfortable when we have a visit to the office! You all make us feel very welcome and cared for--thank you for taking such good care of us!!
-J. and L.

Dr. Makowski provided laser therapy that completely took away my TMJ pain. It felt great immediately following, and was a huge difference the next day. I cannot believe the benefits of laser dentistry. It is an amazing thing not to have pain in my jaw after weeks of aches and pains. Thank you Lakeview Dentistry!!!

Dr. Makowski and the whole staff have been great! It is wonderful to be treated so well and have the opportunity to access cutting edge technology in northern MI. With the lasers and digital x-rays, I feel amazed at the level of care I can receive in this area. The lasers alone have allowed me to have dental procedures like fillings without a single injection. This alone has been worth being a patient here. Thank you staff of Lakeview!

Why would anyone have a filling done with a drill when you can have a laser do it instead? I'm not numb, I can talk and eat right away and it was pain free! Why don't all dentists have this?
