What Clients Are Saying

Quote Icon

"I had a great experience with Dr. Paige Volentine and Trenton Dental. The professional yet family like atmosphere made me feel right at home. The new facility is beautiful, clean and comfortable. Dr. Volentine and her staff are professional but personable. I would say my experience was excellent!"

Quote Icon

"I have been going to Dr. Volentine for as long as I can remember, and I cannot imagine going anywhere else. Every member of the staff makes it a point to make you feel like you are the most important patient in the building. They truly get to know you and make you feel like a friend coming for a visit, not a patient coming for a check up. They are kind, patient, understanding, and comforting no matter the circumstances of your visit. I genuinely look forward to my check ups and getting to visit with my friends."
