I had my first appointment with Dr. Singleton in March of 2010. I hadn't been to a dentist in years and needed a lot of work done. Dr. Singleton told me what needed to be done and how he would do it. It took several months to complete because I needed extractions, bone grafts, implants and crowns. Because of my fear I chose IV sedation. Not only did Dr. Singleton give me my smile back, he also gave me my life back. Everyone I meet tells me I have beautiful teeth and a great smile. Dr. Singleton is a very caring and compassionate person. His whole staff is caring and compassionate. In April of 2013 I moved to is a southwest suburb of Chicago. I looked for a dentist in this area but nobody compared to Dr. Singleton. I still go to Dr. Singleton and my hygienist, Annie, for check-ups and cleanings. The 500 mile round trip is worth it.
