Testimonials

If you’d like to share some kind words and smiles, please ask our front desk staff for a comment card at your next appointment. We’d love to hear about your experience!

“Hi, Dr. Fleitz. I was so struck by the caliber of you and your staff that I had to send you this email saying so. Most businesses these days seem to shoot for adequate at best, but you (and innovations!) clearly set and exceed a much higher bar. Everybody was uncommonly friendly and competent, and seemed to genuinely love their jobs and be happy to be there. So much so that I was happy to be there too—a remarkable statement from someone who normally blanches at the mere thought of drills, needles, and fillings. That I am now actually looking forward to going to the dentist is nothing short of extraordinary, and in direct correlation to your elite level of professionalism and service. I am pleased to be counted among your patients, and will most certainly be recommending you. Have a great holiday season, and I’ll see you and your stellar team next June.”


“Dr. Lindsey Hoppe has been our family’s dentist since 2005. Since that time she has performed many complicated dental procedures: bridge replacement, veneers, implants, and root canals to name just a few. Her work far surpassed our expectations. Knowledgeable, positive, and compassionate, Dr. Hoppe is one of those rare individuals in the healthcare business that truly understands the concerns and needs of each patient, as well as each unique dental case. Her expertise and skills are not only recognized in the local Austin community, but acclaimed throughout Texas. In the professional dental industry, she is highly respected and has received many awards and accolades for her services. There is not much more you can say about Dr. Lindsey Hoppe other than that she is wonderful!” – Kathy


“I’ve never met a more caring staff in my entire life. Dr. Fleitz and his staff are truly amazing. They took care of me and made me feel comfortable with my high anxiety. They didn’t judge me, and they truly care about their patients. Highly recommended.”


“Dr. Lindsey Hoppe is a true professional who treats her patients like family. She works so the medical treatment is absolutely the best possible while taking into consideration the emotional impact of the work. My daughter was adopted from a foreign country at the age of ten years old. Right before we arrived to adopt her, several jealous children beat her up. Unfortunately, they knocked out one of her front teeth and damaged the other. The damage to the second tooth was so severe it had to be removed in the USA. We met Dr. Lindsey Hoppe six years ago, as she was recommended to us by several top orthodontists and periodontists. Pictures, X-rays, and an exam followed, but more importantly, my daughter learned to trust Dr. Hoppe as she quietly explained everything, was positive towards my daughter, and even laughed with her!


“Greatest dentist in my 63 years! Great staff, also. They are polite, professional, sweet, and take time with personal needs. I highly recommend them for ALL the health services offered.”


“Now my daughter has the most beautiful smile ever with absolutely gorgeous front teeth Dr. Hoppe permanently placed! My daughter is so proud of her smile; people tell her how beautiful she is when she smiles, and she has so much confidence in her mouth! Dr. Hoppe spent hours and hours on my daughter’s case! She became more to my daughter than a dentist; she became a trusted and loved friend. My daughter knew Dr. Hoppe would not lie to her, would not hurry to make the situation go away, but would do the best work possible and make things perfect! 

“Personally, I can’t recommend anyone more than Dr. Lindsey Hoppe! With her help, my daughter went from being ashamed and embarrassed to smile and laugh to openly walking around with a huge smile on her face! My daughter is proud of the way she looks and her self-confidence has grown.” – Pam


“Thanks for taking care of me while I was traveling. An Internet search for ‘emergency dentist’ led me to your chair. It should have been a scary experience; instead it was a pleasure. I have never known such a professional, friendly, and helpful medical group in my life. From the moment I was contacted, right up until I left with my ‘shoe shine’ new crown, I felt like I was part of your local family. Wish I could call you my ‘local dentist’; instead, I will call you my ‘favorite dentist.’ Christmas cheers to you and your office family. What a neat bunch of people.”


“Dr. Hoppe is an extremely talented general and cosmetic dentist. I was more than willing to travel the extra distance to reach her office. Her passion and knowledge of dentistry really shines through in her superb work. She went the extra mile to get to know me as a patient and lay out all the possible treatment options. I wish I had found Dr. Hoppe sooner!” – Russell


“Dr. Flietz responded to my mom’s dental emergency very quickly. The entire staff was caring, warm, and very professional, and they even followed up to find out how she was the next day! Recommend them very highly. Thanks so much!”


“I can’t say enough wonderful things about Dr. Hoppe. When I came to her for a smile makeover I immediately knew I was in good hands. She was so kind, thorough, and knowledgeable, and explained every step of her plan to improve my smile in great detail. She always took her time with me and I am thrilled with my new smile. I would highly recommend Dr. Hoppe to anyone looking for outstanding cosmetic and general dentistry.” – Kelly


“I had the most amazing experience this morning with Dr. Fleitz and his staff. They make you feel welcome and comfortable from the second you step inside the door. I couldn’t ask for a better group of people to take care of me. Thank you!”


“Dr. Hoppe is one of the most genuine, caring, and energetic doctors I have ever had. She values each one of her patients individually and goes to great lengths to make sure her patients are satisfied with their smile. I had a particularly unique case with getting a cantilever bridge on one of my front teeth. It was a long process, and Dr. Hoppe worked incredibly hard to get the perfect bridge for my mouth. I love my smile and am so thankful for Dr. Hoppe’s work!” – Allison


“I took my kids here yesterday and absolutely loved the staff and environment. I was seeing another dentist myself, but decided to switch and have an appointment on Tuesday. Highly recommend!”


“I just had the most awesome experience! I needed to have a crown replaced and Dr. Fleitz was able to replace the crown in about two and a half hours. Yes, I walked out with a new porcelain crown the same day, not with a temporary or an appointment to come back in three weeks—the same day! Your crown is perfectly made by computerized technology while you watch. I highly recommend Dr. Fleitz and his staff for any dental needs. The staff is friendly and caring and Dr. Fleitz is on top of the cutting-edge technology.”


“I had the pleasure of working with Dr. Hoppe for almost seven years. Her clinical skills, bedside manner, and her ability to explain and educate patients is like none I have ever seen. Her philosophy is to make sure that patients fully understand what their diagnoses are and why treatment is necessary, and she will only treat if the patient is 100% comfortable. Working with Dr. Hoppe as an employee has been one of the most positive encounters in my life thus far. She is such a caring person and the most understanding boss one could ever have. She treats her employees like more than just employees. She values her employees and treats them with dignity and respect, and allows them to be who they are. She recognizes what their strengths are and helps them to use them to their best ability.” – Candice


“I appreciate so much Dr. Derek Fleitz and his team. They have been taking good care of my family since he began his practice here. I am happy to refer family and friends when I have the opportunity because I know they will receive the same excellent care my husband and I do.”


“I just started going to this office to get Invisalign® and had been told by two other dentists it could not be done. Well, guess what; it is being done and I am going to smile a lot more when it is complete! This is a great dentist with a knowledgeable staff who treats you with kindness, respect, and are all so happy and make you feel so welcomed!”


“It’s rare to find a family dental business which takes great care of what’s inside your mouth but also takes care of you from the time you enter to departure. Been taking care of my dental health at this establishment for almost 15 years and wouldn’t think of going anywhere else. Totally recommend Dr. Fleitz.”


“I have had the good fortune of knowing Lindsey for over nine years and feel I can speak about her quality as a person, her solid character, and devoted professionalism. She is a friend and colleague. As a leading periodontist, I have had the opportunity to work with over 150 dentists. Without embellishment, I believe that Lindsey is the most talented, well-rounded dentist I have ever had the honor to work with. She appreciates that patients need to be counseled and not criticized, treated with respect, and not coerced into treatment. Over the years we have worked on many complex cases and she has always risen to the occasion, making my job as a specialist easy. I have full confidence in her abilities and technical brilliance, and know that cases I have surgically worked hard on will be perfected in the hands of Dr. Hoppe.” – Dr. David Yu


“Dr. Fleitz and his dental team provide service that is very kind, caring, and thorough. The team, from the front desk to Dr. Fleiz himself, is very professional yet friendly. Not only does Dr. Fleitz focus on the present, he makes understandable recommendations that consider long-term care of the teeth. For example, he counseled me on the long-term benefits of an implant rather than a bridge. I have had dental care in several different cities and states, and I would highly recommend Dr. Fleitz and his team to anyone looking for excellent dental care.”


“Where do I begin? How can I repay you? What can I do to show my sincere appreciation? I’ve come across several folks that have paid for dentures and then do not wear them because their dentures are uncomfortable. It is often obvious that denture wearers are wearing dentures. And I hear of folks complaining about the dentures they are wearing because they felt uncomfortable discussing the matter with their dentist! My gosh—I have to look right, feel comfortable, and eat! Therefore, these new dentures were extremely important to me. Y’all are super! I will be proudly wearing mine because you’ve created them beautifully, naturally, and functionally, and customized them for my comfort. I made the decision to get new dentures based on a need, a better look, and the trust I have in you. All of you have made me feel comfortable enough to complain and make suggestions. You have listened to my needs, and voila! No words can express the patience you have shown me. You have displayed genuine care with all of your patients. I am especially grateful for how professional, courteous, and patient you have been with me. I know that I will probably always be remembered as the most complicated and the one that is hard to please, but I also believe that no one else could have done what you all have. My family and I thank you and will always be grateful. Thank you!”
