What Our Patients Are Saying

Dr. Caldwell and his team took good care of me when I was in a dental crisis due to an outside dental provider. I was in so much pain that I could barely think. Dr. Caldwell and his team, including Maria, immediately set me up with the services that I needed. They were compassionate, efficient, and dedicated to caring for patients. I was very impressed with the service and care provided. Thank you so much for helping me through such a difficult time!

Rachel G.

I have been a patient of Dr. Coleton for a few years now and I’m always satisfied with his services. He is professional and personable, taking time to address the immediate needs of his patients. The staff is all so caring, and you can sense the positive relationship Dr. Coleton has with his staff.

Michael T.

I have been a patient of Dr. Altenburg’s for over thirty years. I can’t imagine receiving my dental care anywhere else! The reception staff is always courteous, pleasant, and very helpful. The same is true of the professional staff from the dental assistants to the hygienists to the dentists. I am always treated professionally, and I am an active participant in the plan for my dental care. Over the years, I have referred quite a few of my friends and co-workers to Dr. Altenburg and they have been very pleased with the care they have received. Dr. Caldwell examined me at my last hygienist appointment and was as professional and pleasant as the rest of the staff. I highly recommend seeking dental care at Barry Road Dental.

Gail D.

I highly recommend Barry Road Dental! Dr. Caldwell and his staff are next to none when it comes to friendliness, professionalism, and quality work…AMAZING! By far the best dentist I have been to and the best experience I have ever had with teeth cleanings and dental work…I will never go anywhere else!

Kimberly S.

The staff is so very friendly, and they go way beyond to make you feel comfortable. Although I cannot praise Doctor Coleton enough, not only his impeccable expertise and skill, but he is so kind and courteous. I hated smiling because my teeth were not the greatest. However, thanks to Dr. Coleton and an implant and caps I have a fantastic smile now—I really smile a lot nowadays! I highly recommend the dentistry of Barry Road Dental and Dr. Coleton; my granddaughter is now going there, and I would only recommend the very best for my family.

Linda R.

I had the pleasure of meeting Dr. Coleton when I broke my tooth right before my vacation! He got me in right away. I was immediately impressed with his knowledge and his bedside manner. I had to get a crown and I was extremely anxious. He took the time to explain everything to me and put me at ease. Dr. Coleton and his team of professionals are courteous and knowledgeable. I’ve been seeing him now for a few years. He gave me back my smile and I wouldn’t trust my teeth to anyone else!!! 5 stars!

Daisy M.

Dr. Caldwell is kind, compassionate and passionate about his profession. I have been his patient for close to four years now and am very glad I met him. You won’t be disappointed! I trust him and so can you!

Leslie J.

I met Dr. Caldwell Coleton several years ago after my previous dentist retired. I had PTSD from childhood trauma at the dentist. However, I trusted my prior dentist’s recommendation for his patients. Scared but in dire need of dental services, I went to see Dr. Coleton. When my fear took over and I started to cry during my first visit, Dr. Coleton stopped what he was doing to listen to my story of childhood dental trauma and work through all my fears with me. He heard me and was very attentive throughout the visit. He is utterly amazing. His spirit is wonderful. Dr. Coleton was very meticulous with the care of my teeth. And, after my visit, one of his office staff contact me to make sure I was doing okay. The compassion Dr. Coleton has shown throughout this process has been incredible. I am so grateful for this young man that words cannot express my gratitude. As we live in a society that is all about dollars and cents, Dr. Coleton prioritizes his patients, not the money. I was so impressed by our interactions that I keep him in my daily prayers that his spirit never changes. When I learned he was relocating to Barry Road Dental, I made it a point to let him know where he goes, I am going, even if I must pay out of pocket. He is AWESOME at what he does. I appreciate the spirit of excellence in which he serves.

I have been a patient of Dr. Stephanie Altenberg for over 20 years. She is an excellent dentist, professional and precise in her work. She is very compassionate and works with you to develop a plan of care. Everyone from the receptionists, the technicians, and the dental hygienist are very warm and welcoming. They have become like a family to me. If you are looking for a dentist, I would highly recommend Dr. Stephanie.

Jean H.

Dr. Caldwell is an incredibly professional, compassionate and skilled dentist. My teeth were badly damaged and I was anxious and reluctant to go to a dentist to have them repaired. Fortunately, I was lucky enough to find Dr. Caldwell. He did a fantastic job and my smile is better than ever. If it had not been for Dr. Caldwell, I may never have gotten my teeth fixed. I HIGHLY recommend Dr. Caldwell, especially to those who may be hesitant to go to the dentist.
