Carmel Dental Group is by far the most relaxing and comprehensive dental office my family has ever been to!  The first step in the door makes you feel calm and I was so apprehensive about dentistry I couldn't even sit in the dental chair. Now, I love to go to the dentist and know that I will be well taken care of.  Dr. Hovda has chosen her team of professionals so carefully and likewise they have carefully chosen to work for her.  Fabulous team and fabulous experience!

Thank you for taking such great care of our children today. They had a wonderful first dentist appointment. Your staff is amazing!

I was shopping around for veneers for my front teeth.  I went to several offices for comparisons of treatment plan and cost.  Dr. Hovda was by far the most knowledgeable and thorough in her examination and assessment of what I wanted and what would look the best.  She also does what is called a ‘wax up’ first so that I could see what my teeth will look like so that there are no surprises. Everyone in the office is so warm and friendly and I did not feel like I was being pushed into a cosmetic case that I would be uncomfortable with.  Truly a lovely experience and my veneers look so natural.  I smile all the time now.  So glad I chose Carmel Dental Group!

Dr. Hovda has to be the best Dentist you could ask for! She and her staff, hands down, cannot be beat.  Dr. Hovda is very compassionate, and caring about her patients.  She explains all procedures she has to do, so clearly.  I was extremely fearful of the dentist, and she put me totally at ease.  I now, actually, enjoy coming in for my check ups and follow up visits.  Her office is so calming when you walk in, it is decorated so nice, and they have really nice music playing.  You feel very comfortable.  Anyone looking for a great Dentist needs to make an appointment with Dr. Hovda and her tremendous Staff.

Dr. Hovda is amazing!  When you walk in the door, the doctor and the entire staff treat you with kindness and care.  At that point you have become a part of the Carmel Dental Group.  I can unequivocally say that from my first visit with Dr. Hovda, I am impressed by her attention to detail, her passion for the profession, her concern for me and her strive to accomplish only the best results.  And with every visit, I look forward to seeing my dentist and receiving the excellent care, genuine compassion and effective procedures from her.  I can say that Dr. Hovda truly makes me smile.

I enjoy going to see Dr. Hovda and her staff.  I just pop in sometimes to have a calming attitude displayed to me when I am out of sorts!  It is refreshing to grab a cup of coffee, chat with Kim a bit and get on with my day.

What a pleasant experience. I will definitely refer my family and friends to Dr. Hovda.

- Caroline

I can say without reservation, having worked with Dr. Hovda at the IU School of Dentistry, that she is one of the finest and most knowledgeable dentists in the area.

- Dr. Fred

The ClearCorrect retainers were very easy to wear and get used to.  I loved the fact that no one even knew I had them in.  At times, I didn’t even realize I had them in myself.  I am very excited on how my teeth turned out in just 9 months.  I strongly recommend Dr. Hovda and ClearCorrect to anyone because of their comfort and they’re basically invisible.

- Ross

Dr. Hovda and her staff did a great job in making me feel right at home. I really enjoyed her new office. It is very calming to walk into and I was greeted and seated right away. Dr. Hovda has a way of making me feel comfortable whether I have a routine exam or complex procedures. I’ve been a patient of hers for years and I'd recommend her to anyone.

Thank you for a wonderful experience during the office visits for cleaning, exam, and crown procedure.  The cleaning and exam were the best, very thorough and gentle.  The crowns are excellent, better than the originals, well made and beautifully placed.  The entire staff from the front desk to the cleaning, exam, and crown work is amazing.  They are kind, gentle, considerate of patients and each other and made you feel that you are among good friends.  Also, the crowns now floss so well.  I am enjoying everything about these crowns.  Way to go Dr. Hovda and Staff.  I highly recommend them for excellence in dental care.
