Kendra R Says

Dr Mike moved to Fay-town, I used him in Ft Smith. He was awesome! I miss him as his dental patient! God Bless Dr. Mike!!

Teresa P Says

Dr. Wheeler and his assistants have been absolutely super to deal with. I had all my teeth pulled and dentures made. They made me feel I was not alone in the process. They were comforting. So as well as taking care of my medical issues they gave me emotional support. The front office staff has to be one of the nicest group I have ever dealt with. Plus after working through the adjustment process I love my teeth.

Dianne B Says

All the staff at Monarch have been a real blessing to me. Dr. Mike Wattles has given me excellent care as well as Dr. Renegar earlier. Tanya and Yulia are kind and friendly. Also Monarch's policy of accepting the Aetna Discount Program has made this economically feasible. With dedicated, talented professionals right here in my own neighborhood and Care Credit that gives me time to map out my financial strategy, I'd say, "Don't change anything, except that I really appreciate that this Monarch office seems to be close to the leading edge in new dental techniques, giving their patients the best care available. Keep up the beautiful work and thank you very much!

Jane J Says

Dr Deb, and ALL the staff are very professional, friendly, caring and attentive. I have been seeing Dr Deb and her staff for 23 years and would not consider going anywhere else.
