Reviews for Exceptional Dentistry

Welcoming Patients from Dubuque, Davenport, Dyersville, IA, Nearby Wisconsin and Galena, IL

"Took my 4 week old son to get looked at for lip and tongue ties, and the dentist was so knowledgeable about the problems she was seeing in him. All of the staff was so accommodating to us and our needs. They had a separate room to have him in that was perfect for feeding him afterwards. Very clean and nice place. Highly recommend for any tongue or lip releases."

I brought my 4 month in for a consult on her lip and tongue tie. Dr. Berning and her staff were extraordinary. She was very thorough and made me feel very comfortable. The procedure took less than 5 minutes and afterwards she sat with us and explained the post op instructions. She had me practice stretches on my little one prior to leaving and I’m so glad she did as I feel much more comfortable doing them myself now. I can’t recommend this place enough. I am so happy with our care!

I had another great visit at Exceptional Dentistry. They are always very professional in everything they do, but also fun to visit with (when I’m in between moments of them working in my mouth)! My tooth cleaning appointment was quick and easy, and my hygenist answered any questions I had. Going to Exceptional Dentistry of the Tri-States assures me that I’m getting the best possible care for my teeth!

Thank you so much, Dr Berning and staff for getting our son worked in so quickly. His tongue and lip tie procedure was quick, with compassionate care. Everything is going as planned and I feel confident knowing what to expect, thanks to your thorough post-op instructions. Thanks again!

Everyone there is absolutely wonderful, very friendly, and very professional. That is why I travel all the way across the state to have my dental work done here.

While it may seem odd to some, I actually enjoy my dental checkups. Everyone always greet me with a smile and a friendly hello by name. Making the switch to Exceptional Dentistry 5 years ago was the best decision I made for our dental health. We've learned a lot and have put it to use. Dr. Berning is a true artist and I have a smile to prove it! Thank you all.

I just wanted to sincerely thank you all again for such an amazing, positive, first-time experience in your ‘dentistry home’! I’m not even going to call it an ‘office’ because it’s nothing like an office at all! From the second I stepped in, and my senses immediately caught the beautiful aroma in the entryway, I knew I was going to get royal treatment! I was nervous as all heck, but red carpet here we come! I was so very nervous as a first-time patient, not knowing what to expect (given my past history and worried I’d be frowned upon). I walked out of your ‘home’ totally floored and in shock that you all have such a genuinely compassionate personality about you (and funny too!). You were all so darn sweet that I was almost in tears! You really do live up to your ‘Exceptional Dentistry’ motto, as I felt very special today in your care. Dr. Murray, you have chosen your team well, and I am already amazed with you in one visit. When I was there I felt as if I was your only patient that day (good thing I wasn’t cuz you wouldn’t make any money that way! LOL) But you and your awesome team catered to me as if I was, and this is how it should be no matter where you go – but it’s not…so thank you. I know I have a little bit of a road ahead of me to achieve the beautiful smile I desire – but I trust you – I knew that after today’s visit that I made the right choice to come see you. Thanks again.

I have none. As the staff is now aware, I’m scared to death of dentists! Everyone made me feel secure and assured me that all would/will be okay. I’m still scared, but do know that everyone actually cares about me and my health and will do the best they can to make me comfortable in whatever procedures need to be done to give me back a healthy mouth and a healthy smile! Thank you all so much!

Best dental experience I have ever had! My anxiety isn’t gone, but it is diminished to the point I’ll be able to finally give my teeth the dental care they deserve on a regular basis. I went from being tortured at the dentist to being cared about. I didn’t believe it was possible. ‘Exceptional’ describes Dr. Murray and his staff perfectly!

You definitely live up to the name of your business and the services provided! My thanks to you fo re-arranging you patient roster to work me in on such short notice. Everyone on staff has been professional, courteous, and caring. I am very glad I chose this practice for my dental needs (and my husband Randy). I will gladly recommend Exceptional Dentistry to colleagues, friends, and acquaintances. I look forward to a good professional/client relationship with your office. Thanks again for everything

From the minute I walked into your office I felt at ease and treated with warm, caring respect. My whitening procedure went smoothly. I was extremely pleased after having old, yellow, smoke-stained teeth looking almost like new again. Thanks for giving me my smile back again.

I am thoroughly pleased and amazed at the level of professionalism, efficiency, and caring displayed by each and every staff member. The attention to detail and commitment to advanced technology is always appreciated. I would be remiss in not heaping large doses of praise for the interior design and decoration of the office suites.

A trip to the dentist is not on the top of anybody’s list but Dr Murray and his staff are outstanding and I couldn’t imagine going anywhere else.

No issues. Hands down the best dental experience I have had. It amazes me that after 6 months, the staff knows your name and everything you told them from the last visit. Truly and excellent experience.
