Dr. Martin and his staff are wonderful. They are friendly, helpful and make you feel comfortable. The facilities are beautiful both inside and out . I’ve never had a bad experience here. Would highly recommend Westermeier Martin to anyone looking for honest , knowledgeable, and kind dentists and dental assistants who treat their patients with compassion and respect. They are honest about dental work and will not rip you off ( unlike the high profile dentist in Amherst that I had previously been to). Westermeier Martin have integrity and class.
The staff are Amazing!!!! They are always so pleasant and patient with each person. There is never a long waiting period to go into a room. Dr. Ehlers is wonderful. I am so glad I made the change from my dentist to Westermeier Martin. Never have I been disappointed with anyone or any procedure I have had done. Very thorough and answers every question. Would highly recommend!!!!!
The staff were welcoming and helpful. Check-in was quick, though patients should have their new patient paperwork completed in advance. Patti and Doctor took enough time to review the situation, run through the potential treatment plans, explain the procedures. They also reviewed options for the timing, costs and potential issues. They were very accommodating in terms of planning for the overall treatment and sensitive to options to spread the cost out to meet budgeting requirements. It was a great initial consultation.
