“As a person who has moved no less than eight times in my life, I have known many dentists in my day. Dennis Santini is the most competent dentist who has ever worked on me. He is not only skilled, but he cares and he listens to me. He isn’t satisfied until his patients are. His credentials are impeccable; he keeps up to date on the newest dental techniques, and makes sure his staff does too.

You can’t put a value on good dental care, and what a blessing it is for me to have my teeth in such good shape that almost for the first time in my life I no longer have to worry about them for they have been taken care of.

My entire family goes to Santini Family Dentistry, and between us we have been worked on by every person on the staff there and found each to be professional, courteous and best of all – competent. Going to the dentist is not a traumatic experience for my children as it always was for me, as the staff is gentle and communicative. I have never had better dental care in my life and I recommend Santini Family Dentistry to anyone who needs professional, courteous dental care.”

“I am writing this to say how grateful and thankful I am to be a patient at the Santini Family Dentistry office.  I suffer from what I would call extreme dental anxiety.  This dental office is the best I have ever been to.  The entire staff, from the secretaries, dental assistants, hygienists and dentists, is so caring and sensitive to my condition.  They go above and beyond to be sure I am completely comfortable and pain free during my dental visits.  I am a patient of Dr. Kristina and I really can’t put into words how exceptional I think she is as a dentist and how caring she is as a person.  Thank you so much everyone at Santini Family Dentistry~ I appreciate all of you!”

-Susan J.

“My husband and I have been receiving dental care from Santini Family Dentistry for many years.  We have had excellent care, from cleanings to crowns to veneers and root canals.  In emergencies, Dr. Dennis Santini has always made himself available, day or night.  We both are very pleased not only with the dental service, but also with the way the staff assists the patients with insurance and billing issues.  They are always friendly and professional.  Hats off to a great team!”

-Elaine M.

“Our family has been blessed by the care and concern that Santini Family Dentistry has for their patients!  My youngest daughter had an injury, which caused her two front teeth to be loose.  It was Dr. Fredrickson’s calm demeanor and reassurance that lessened our anxieties.”

-Tracy R.

“I have been a patient at Santini Family Dentistry for about a year and half.  My past oral history has been a grinder of my teeth as I sleep which has resulted in a majority of my teeth wearing down to the point of needing restoration.  I have had extensive work done to rebuild several teeth and to correct my bite in general.

My experience with the Santini Family Dentistry staff and Dr. Kristina Fredrickson has been very positive.  I would say that there are four immediate thoughts that come to mind when I describe my experience.

  • They developed a plan to complete my restoration and to correct my bite.
  • I was aware of the cost up front and was able to work that into my budget.
  • They work as a team in the office from the front desk, Dr. Fredrickson, Treatment Coordinator Jennifer and consultation from Dr. Santini.
  • The office provided quality care with timely follow up visits.  I was provided with an emergency number if needed.

As a patient that has had extensive work completed on my teeth, I would highly recommend Santini Family Dentistry to any patient or family that is looking for quality dental care.”

“For 30 years and counting I’ve been a patient of Dr. Dennis Santini.  He has skillfully risen to every challenge my complex dental picture has presented to him, and all of that and he’s given me a glowing smile as well!  I have great confidence on his abilities and those of his very competent and friendly staff.”

“The Art of Dentistry is exemplified in the excellent care I have had the privilege of receiving at Santini Family Dentistry in Kingsford.  Not only is a person treated like family but I was treated likewise with competence, compassion and care with structured knowledge in the midst of what is the latest in equipment and the manner in which it was administered.

Dr. Kristina is always so gentle, kind and concerned about your pain level and I find her procedures to be virtually pain free.  We are so fortunate to have such wonderful dentistry in our area and local communities and I highly recommend this wonderful team.”

-Theresa L.

“I have been a very happy patient of Santini Dental since I moved to Iron Mountain six years ago.  Deanna is fabulous and I look forward to our chats while she cleans and inspects my teeth.  She always has a smile for me and my visits to the office always put me in a good mood.  Dr. Kristina is gentle and thorough and does excellent work.  I like their use of new technology, like the digital x-rays and tooth color-matched fillings.  I can always count on quality care and a good laugh when I come to Santini Dental.

-Jess H.

“I had a toothache start on a Friday evening.  I thought I could wait until Monday to call the Dental office… until Sunday morning when I woke up in tears. I called Dr. Kristina Fredrickson’s emergency cell phone and she could hear the pain in my voice.  She met me at her office about an hour later and performed an emergency wisdom tooth extraction. The pain was instantly gone!

I could not have had a better experience. Dr. Kristina Fredrickson and her staff truly care about their patients. I am so happy to be a patient here at Santini Family Dentistry! I recommend them to everyone.

They are the BEST!”

-Tesha M.

“It will be hard to fully express this in words, as finding a dentist you trust, that does great work and keeps up on the very latest state of the art tools, procedures etc., is a wonderful feeling too.

Over the years I have been to several different dentists, but I rank the Santini office as THE BEST!

I was first impressed by the fact that Kristina had seen me on a moment’s notice when my tooth cracked off.  My own dentist at the time told me “It is impossible for us to see you today.”  At the time I thought it was the worse disservice a dentist could do to a patient, but as it turned out, that is how I came to find Kristina.  So in hindsight, they did me a favor in the long run.

Every time I entered the office’s door, I was greeted by her team’s smiling faces and upbeat positive attitudes and that includes EVERY ONE OF THEM!

The work that was done to me was absolutely top notch, and everything was explained to me prior to. I never felt pushed or pressured into anything.  I also always felt very respected.

The only reason Kristina is no longer our dentist, is because we moved downstate, and that truly is in the top 3 things that we will sorely miss.  I have recommended Kristina to many people, for in my eyes there isn’t a better dentist office in the entire Upper Peninsula.  Thank you.
