Love Dr Ahoyt's office and staff. The staff is very friendly. Kids love playing video games in the waiting room, while I drink a coffee from their Keurig machine. You also get to watch tv while they work on your teeth. Dr Ahoyt is the best dentist we've ever had.

Peter Pullara, Jr., DDS - We have gone to Dr. Pullara since moving to Plainfield over 20 years ago. My grandchildren are now going to Dr. Pullara! Dr. Pullara, his office staff, and the dental hygienists are all friendly professionals. They greet you with a smile and make you feel immediately at ease. They are outstanding at their jobs, too!

Dr. Dan Streitz and his father Dr. Tom Streitz have been taking care of my teeth for over 30 years and my families for over 40. Aside from being talented and extremely professional dentists they are also 2 of the nicest, fun-to-be around guys you'll ever meet. Thanks Dr. Streitz ~~~~~~~~~ Johnson Family
