Dr. Fred Bast has been my dental provider for decades and practically every tooth in my mouth has been revitalized with his proficient care. Only recently has his son, Dr. John Bast, replaced my 70 year old #30 & 31 molars with implants and my #7 (front tooth) laminate to secure my smile vanity. I don’t waste any time making an appointment to see these guys whenever I have an issue with my teeth. Five stars from me for them!!

Even though I had never been here before they were able to see me when I had an emergency. They got me in that same day and took such good care of me. Dr Bast and his staff are are super nice and efficient. I don't like going to the dentist but I will come back here.

I highly recommend this dentist and dental office. My visits have been delightful experiences - something I've never said before about a dental visit. The staff is always professional and very pleasant, the dental work I had done was performed by Dr. Bast perfectly. I am pleased beyond description with the results.

Staff is professional and pleasant. I've never had any dental work done there fail.

I don't like dentists, but I like this one. Everyone in the office is great to work with and genuinely friendly. They can usually get me in whenever I need with no issues.

The whole staff is prompt, polite, and considerate. The only suggestion I would have might be ear phones for those of us who get nervous with the sound of the drill.

Nicest dentist I have ever been to. Very positive interaction with Dr. Bast, the hygenist, and the staff. I hadn't been to the dentist in a couple years, but they didn't make me feel ashamed about that, but were happy to start getting me back in the habit of regular appointments.
22:45 24 May 18
I’m not a fan of the dentist, who is?! The staff and Dr. Bast made me feel very welcome. I’d say that it was probably the most enjoyable dental experience I’ve had.
04:53 17 May 18
I used to be afraid, or at least nervous to see a dentist. NEVER again since I've been coming here. Dr. Bast as well as his staff are the best I've ever seen. They are fast, efficient, (relatively) painless, do superb work, and make me feel comfortable and happy to be there while they're at it. They answer any questions I have and educate me as to my own self-care gracefully. And they're right there to bail me out when I botch my self care or wait too long to come in. I'd never go anywhere else. Thanks! Fran Turner

I recently had a crown done at this office. Dr. Bast and his team were friendly and efficient. Dr. Bast took time to address any questions I had and even followed up to see how the crown was working out.The hygienist is awesome-she was great with my kids and made a balloon animal for my son!!
17:13 16 Nov 17
Dr. Bast and his office is kind, efficient, and caring of it's patients. Every time I have work to be completed they work with my schedule to find a time that will work with my hours and living in a remote area. I wouldn't go anywhere else!

New to area and I found a good dentist!
20:15 12 Sep 17
For the first time ever i had a good experience at the dentist. Ive felt in the past hurried and pressured, like they were trying to push me through. Not today as the staff was truly friendly and did their jobs with a real smile on thrir faces. Just a good cleaning and check up and out the door.

I get extremely nervous/anxious when I have fillings that need to be done. My dentist was very fast and I felt no pain at all. By the end of my appointment I felt relaxed and at ease.
21:23 23 Mar 17
Dr. John and his team are very attentive. The professional and warm/caring atmosphere is inviting. I love Donna! I'm excited to introduce my four-year-old to this team. --- AND THE VERDICT IS: Aedan was so comfortable, it went really, really well! He's excited to try out his new timer when brushing. YAY!

After not being to a dentist in years, I went to see Dr. John Bast about a filling that had fallen out. He was very nice and explained what we needed to do to get it fixed. He walked me through procedures and made sure I was doing okay. He's a great dentist and has great assistants! I would recommend him to all of my family and friends. Thank you Dr. John!

Excellent option for Dental work, professional and knowledgeable.
06:40 11 Jan 17
By far the best dental experience I have ever had. The cleaning was thorough and the tech was so kind and held a conversation (she must have sensed my anxiousness). The x-ray tech was quick and kind as well! The male dentist I saw was very respectful, patient, and thorough with explaining what I needed done and why. I'm looking forward to going back!

My husband's bridge was loose and Dr. John Bast took his time to remove it and re-cement it, saving us the cost of having to buy a new bridge. He had a few other procedures done as well and was highly satisfied with Dr. Bast and his work.

Bast Dental Clinic shows the highest level of care for their patients. My children love going to the dentist, and our oral hygiene needs are consistently met in a timely, efficient and professional manner. I'd highly recommend this office to anyone. Dr. Bast and his staff are warm, friendly and kind people who clearly care about this community and work hard to ensure my family is taken care of every time we visit.

I started seeing Dr.Bast about 10 years ago. I came in with a lot of cavities, and discomfort. He was able to restore my smile and with all the information and hygiene instructions I have been cavity free for 9 years! I recently brought my 4year old in, and both Dr.Bast and the hygienist made it an excellent experience for him.

Excellent staff and dentist! I recommend for anyone, but especially those scared to go to a dental office. Everyone there will make you feel comfortable and put your anxiety to rest.

Dr. Bast and his staff are welcoming, friendly, and time efficient. My cleanings have always been quick, painless, and thorough and their office was even able to fit me in last minute when my wisdom teeth exctractions (which were not done by Dr. Bast) got infected. I have had no problems at this office and would high recommend this dental team!

After avoiding the dentist for most of my adult life, I scheduled an appt at Dr. Bast's office. Upon arriving, I was greeted warmly by the front desk staff, who were very helpful. They made me feel comfortable while I was waiting, which wasn't long! After an in-depth examination, Dr. Bast took the time to explain to me what he had found and answered all of my questions thoroughly. He also gave me several options for treatment, so that I could choose which would work best for my situation. I found this same level of care to be consistent with the hygienist, who reviewed flossing techniques with me, and gave me several products to help with home care. Whether you are looking to become an established patient, or have a specific concern you would like addressed, I would highly recommend Dr. Bast and his staff!
