Patient Testimonials

What Our Clients Say About Us

    I have been going to Dr. Lovan for years. What I like most is how friendly everyone is. They always ask about my family, I know they care. Ronda, my hygienist is great. She is very gentle and great at her job.


    It is always a pleasure to visit your place knowing that my needs will be taken care of in en efficient and effective manner from the time I enter the building to the time I exit. There are few places like yours out there.


    13 years and counting…that’s how long our family has been under the care of Dr. Lovan and the staff at Prairie St. Dentistry. If you’re seeking top-notch, dedicated, trustworthy dental care; this is the place to come.


    Who could have imagined as an adult in later years new dental technology would allow Dr. Lovan to change those teeth to appear straight by adding Lumineers. And the plus to it all is I still have my original teeth.


    Before Lumineers, I was always careful how big I smiled because I was self-conscious of my teeth. Now, without a thought, I smile as big as I can. I love my new smile!


    As a senior citizen, I was not happy with my smile. My teeth looked “old.” Thanks to Dr. Lovan and Lumineers, I’m thrilled with my new smile. Now, my teeth look like they did years ago! Try Lumineers…you’ll be so glad you did.

    ease and my wait for services was when it was scheduled. My teeth and mouth felt clean after Rhonda had completed her work and the Dr. took care of a minor problem then and there without having to make another appointment. Thanks for a GREAT job.


    patients at Prairie Street for years. Dr. Lovan and his staff do a wonderful job of making people comfortable, fitting appointments into busy schedules if possible, and fitting in the “emergency” visit as needed. Brenda even makes a routine cleaning enjoyable!

    Cavities are little holes in teeth that can eventually cause big problems. They form when tooth-eroding acid attacks a tooth's protective outer covering (enamel).
