My dentist... My hero... Andy...when it comes to your teeth trust is the operative word and I trust him completely. He cares and he is the best! I feel he is superior to any other Dentist. His work is made in the detail and when it comes to our teeth that is what matters. He is kind, honest and very gentle. I never fear when I come in. His staff is so friendly and accommodating. When you take your seat in the chair you can relax, and know it will all be AOK. I sent both my husband and son to Dr. A and I recommend him to all my friends.

I love Andy and his crew at Three Rivers Dental. They've been really good to me and gone out of their way to meet my scheduling and financial needs. Their patience and understanding is much appreciated. I trust Andy's judgement is always in my best interest.

Your staff is excellent and your office is by far the best run office in all of Missoula. It is a pleasure to have you as my dentist. Many thanks

The first thing I noticed at Smile Missoula was how well I was treated by everyone - doctor, receptionist, dental hygienist, chair-side assistants ... all were friendly and personable.

The next thing I noticed was the care. I didn't encounter anyone who was "going through the motions" but whose attention was elsewhere. Always the focus was on my dental issues, including ensuring I was comfortable with individual procedures as well as with the treatment in general.

Then I discovered the assistants were trained in various areas of specialization. The doctor would drop by occasionally to check on progress and the quality of their work. I could sense an air of competence in their actions, and saw how each took pride in doing her specialty well.

Over time, I realized the office philosophy was to recommend what was best for me in the long run, even if it seemed expensive at the time. I followed their recommendations, and have never regretted it.

You and your staff worked extra hard to handle the unexpected situation cheerfully and efficiently. Thank You!

I think all of you are great! I particularly like that I’m told what’s going to happen before it happens. No one likes surprises at the dentist, ha ha. You’re doing really well.

Going to Smile Missoula is rewarding. Dr. Althauser and his whole staff are welcoming, helpful and kind. Their approach to preventive dentistry is inspiring and encouraging. They have helped our family to take greater responsibility for our oral hygiene and actively encourage our children to develop and maintain healthy brushing, flossing and dietary habits. This support has been invaluable for us as parents as we try to navigate the pitfalls of diet and lifestyle that are so destructive to healthy teeth, gums and bodies. Like so many areas of our lives in Missoula, we now see them as our friends who happen to help us with our dental care.

As always, service and treatment are exceptional. That is why after approx 18 years, I continue to use this office for my dental care. Thanks for being so wonderful.
- Barbara Ovitt

Tina gave me the most thorough cleaning and exam ever. She is enchanting and the time raced past. George is, as always, wonderful, compassionate, and explains everything in detail. I’ve lost my fear of dentists thanks to you! My best wishes for the New Year.
- Sheryl Noeth

It was a pleasant experience. I was very comfortable and appreciated the extra accomadations provided for a bad back that I had. I also think Dr. Olsen did a great job on the color match for a chipped front tooth.|
- Mary Hoffman

George, Jennifer and I have felt that the transition from Dr Addleson’s office to yours was seamless. That to us was very important. Thank you and your team for the great work!.

Since 1981, I have enjoyed having you and your staff for my dental professionals. You always provide excellent dental care. You welcome me as an individual, you educate me on my own dental hygiene, and you carefully monitor immediate and long term dental needs. I am always impressed with your attention to my physical and psychological being. I highly recommend you to my friends. Thank you for your commitment to excellence in dentistry and to your patients. You set the standard for all dentists and dental practices.
