My experience with Uppleger Dental was by accident.. I walked in the office and was greeted by a friendly lady at the front desk who could not find my appointment so I started looking in my emails for the appointment which I couldn't find..long story short I was at the wrong dentist office and there was no appointment scheduled for me so she asked the doctor if I could be seen and the rest is history....had a dental exam, x-rays and a consultation with the doctor about the finding.. very professional!!
- Montez Wright. 2/5/2020
Excellent care, very through and professional. Best initial exam and cleaning i’ve ever had. Would highly recommend this practice.
- Diane Rieman. 2/3/2020
I love the Uppleger Crew. They are like FAMILY now ... always engaging, supportive, caring and swift!

Uppleger Dental is a five star dental office. During my visit I was welcomed with smiles and made to feel very comfortable. I am truly happy with Uppleger Dental. Thank you!
- Kristina Robinson Garrett. 1/19/2020
First time at this location, and everyone was so friendly and welcoming. Most gentle cleaning and exam I have ever had. I'm actually excited to come back for my 6 month appointment! Thank you ladies and Dr. Uppleger!
- Kara Harbour. 1/11/2020
The entire staff is very warm and friendly, and Dr. Uppleger and Dr. Solomich are extremely professional and very knowledgeable. This has to be one of the BEST dental practices in the Metro Detroit area!
- F Brown. 1/5/2020
Dr. Katherine is AMAZING with my 2 boys. She's very professional & knowledgeable. She also sings Disney movie songs to my children, while they're getting their dental work done. My kids absolutely LOVE HER!!!
- Rena Rich. 0/17/2020
Very positive experience. I was seeking a dental practice closer to my home and asked around. I did not want “a clinic” or mega practice where I see a different dentist each visit. The staff is uber-professional, warm and friendly. The practice is state-of-the-art and is located very conveniently (corner of Southfield Rd and 13 Mile). They have their own building, so I thought maybe it was a mega-practice.. but it is a father/daughter dental team. I am very pleased!
- Rita Valade. 0/6/2020
I have been with Dr. Uppleger and his wife for almost 18yrs. I was referred by my college dentist and feel like they are my family. Even when new staff comes in, they quickly get to know my family and I. The Uppleger dental office is the best!!!!!
- Jamilya Goree. 10/19/2019
Everyone on staff is nice and friendly, the atmosphere is pleasant, and I am very impressed with the quality of care. I highly recommend this place.
- Katherine Diamond. 10/12/2019
Uppleger Dental is the best! Front Desk staff is super accommodating, the dentists know their stuff and the hygienist team is great with our kids! Highly recommend. The text messaging system is also super helpful to remind us of our upcoming appointments.

- Cassandra Ritter. 9/1/2019
Great staff and excellent customer services. The offices are very nice and clean. I enjoyed my first visit and everyone was very welcoming and friendly. They use the most current dental technology.
- Brenda Malone. 8/6/2019
State of the Art Facility! Staff is very professional, friendly, accommodating, and GENTAL . The offices are ALWAYS Impeccably Clean! (Timely ) In all of the years that I have been a patient, I have NEVER had to wait for an appointment. I absolutely love the Uppleger Family!
- BlueDream *. 7/23/2019
Best dentist(s) and dental office I’ve ever been to in my life, bar none! Have recommended several friends to go and they all agree.
- Jackie Arnold. 7/8/2019
The absolute best dental experience I've had! Very warm and inviting space. I absolutely loved Rebecca my hygienist. She walked me through everything that she was doing.
- Talana Perry. 6/1/2019
Family friendly warm and highly professional. Rebecca is by far the most outstanding employee working within the office. Knowledgeable and helps customers by explaining each aspect of treatment Prior to starting the procedure and giving each customer reasonable dental goals for next visit.
- David Cherry. 5/18/2019
They are great! Comfortable atmosphere great technology and painless procedures
- Michael Elder. 5/11/2019
Dr. Solomich is the best!! I had the most amazing care this Monday Morning, provided by Dr. Solomich. I called because a had cracked a piece off my crown, it felt like a crater!! I am so grateful that I was in Dr. Solomich' chair at 9:00 am. The doctor was amazing, I was very comfortable with the procedure and was able to get the temporary at that time. I would recommend Dr. Solomich for any dental work you would need.
- Mary Sullivan. 5/10/2019
The people there are absolutely they best! They even stayed late when I showed up unannounced with my 6 year old, who had two chipped teeth from the playground. Dr. Kathryn and Ms. Wendy are especially great!
- P.J. Cwayna. 4/20/2019
Amazing as ALWAYS. Thorough exam, friendly, kind and compassionate. Dr. Katherine makes you feel incredibly at ease and all of the dental hygienists that I have had the opportunity to have have been patient, kind and responsive.
I know this is hard to believe, but I have two kids and they have been fighting for a WEEK about who GOT TO GO back to the dentist. As someone who had some serious childhood and adult trauma in the dentist chair, this is music to this mama's ears. I was afraid I would pass my fears onto my kids, but it seems to have bypassed them completely.
Additionally, due to adult dental trauma, I used to get nauseous and shake for a simple dental cleaning. Needless to say, I have had several cleanings and filings completed without anxiety or additional medication or interventions. This is an amazing practice and I HIGHLY recommend Uppleger Dental!
- Danielle Cover. 3/8/2019
We are new to Uplegger Dental Clinic. My daughter usually has Anxiety when she goes to the Dentist. However, she had the best experience EVER. She told me she was very comfortable and did not feel any pain AT ALL! That was very Pleasing to hear from her . Also, Dr. Katherine Uppleger was extremely thorough with her examination and explaining everything with specific details. The staff from check in to check out was AWESOME! Very professional Front Desk! Very nice and beautiful Staff! We wish we had become their patient sooner!
- Shanna Matthews. 3/4/2019
Friendly, professional staff and the Doctors are wonderful!
- Nicole Held. 2/13/2019
The best dentist ... ever. Very welcoming and warm. I have a large family and they are always able to accommodate my scheduling needs... and they're profession and gentle on our teeth! If you need a good dentist - your search stops here!
- Shaun Green. 1/26/2019
I just love the staff. They're so friendly and super sweet. I highly recommend them!!
- Toni Guthridge. 1/26/2019
Love this dentist. After a few bad experiences with other dentists I was very leary. To my suprise, it was the best dental visit I have ever had. They even called after hours to make sure I wasn't in pain. I would give six stars if i could.
- lee Dancy. 1/12/2019
I loved my visit at Uppleger Dental. Usually after leaving my previous dentist office my mouth was always sore and irritated but I’m glad to say that was not the case at Uppleger. All of the staff were so friendly and welcoming, the hygienist took great care of me and the office was very clean!! Plus, the staff were baking fresh cookies and offered me one on the way out. 10/10 would recommend.
- Lily Thompson. 1/11/2019
What a great place, the whole family treats you like first class. I came from Dearborn all the way here. office manager A class person, with so much care and respect

I've been to this office twice so far. I enjoyed the experience there.
- Xiaoqian Lily Xu. 11/20/2018
I'm writing this review while still numb!! Every single person on staff if friendly and knowledgeable. The denist was able to save my tooth, and save me money. The lobby is so comfy, and clean. I'm very excited to now be apart of the uppleger family!
- Sha Sha. 11/10/2018
Kind, smart, aware, great listening skills! Entered the building with a 3m mask in case fragrance was too strong. Lasted quite a few minutes before becoming overwhelmed. In that time, chatted with personnel, and found them quite knowledgeable regarding scents, and invisible disabilities / asthma / migraines! Very involved with their workplace; was able to tell me Pine Sol was used for the floor, when the carpets were cleaned, how often! Offered condolences that it was too strong even though they try not to use excessive scents, wished me well, and truly seemed to care and hope that I found a safe dentist. Would love to have a dentist as involved as they are!
(Note Dec 2018: Until the potholes at the entrance are repaired, keep to the right when driving in. Road construction caused them some issue. Almost missed them and glad of it! Got around the hole!)
- Ellie Antaya. 11/4/2018
Going to the dentist, not my favorite thing!!! But, as a new patient, I am pleased!! Thank you to my special friend who referred me and to the staff for their professionalism and personable approach!!!
- Jacqui Fryer. 11/4/2018
Wonderful staff. As pleasant as a trip to the dentist can be.
- Matt Neef. 11/3/2018
As a new patient, I called on Saturday evening because I was experiencing excruciating pain since the night before. I had left a voicemail on the after hours phone number, and within 20 minutes I had received a call back. They told me they could see me the next morning, a Sunday morning following a holiday. When I arrived Sunday, from start to finish I felt no pain, I felt comfortable, and I knew I was in good hands. I could not thank Uppleger enough for taking the time out of their personal lives, to see me (a new patient they have never met before) to make sure I was no longer in pain. I will always recommend Uppleger Dental to my friends and family. Thank you so much for your professionalism!
- Heather A. 10/26/2018
Great place to get your teeth cleaned
- Madonna Spencer. 10/8/2018
Our family switched practices a few years ago and nothing has changed since we moved to Uppleger Dental. The entire staff is always caring and professional. We couldn't ask for more. In a few words: Just good people!!!
- Avis Najor. 10/5/2018
I was referred here by a friend. I LOVE this dentist! First, they give a consult specifically for you. Then they clean your teeth! I’m a patient for life. Very thorough in explaining and cleaning. You will not be disappointed!

- John Yavruian. 8/21/2018
Such friendly staff and an enjoyable experience. They also have high-tech, update-to-date technology !
- Jessica Crawford. 7/17/2018
As new patients we were very pleased with our visit. The staff and Dr. Uppleger were very through and could not be more friendly. We felt very much at home in our new dental office. We look forward to our next visit.
- Michael Sullivan. 6/6/2018
My experience with Uppleger Dental has been great... since my first visit two years ago. Dr. Uppleger, Wendy, Dr. Katherine and the entire team are always professional, pleasant, patient and efficient. They are willing to work with me and around my other current existing medical conditions...which I really appreciate. Today, (June 27) my appointment with Rebecca was great. She, like all of the other technicians, was very conscientious about addressing my unique circumstances as well as helping me stay on track for improved dental health. Thank you, to the entire staff, for providing quality services and a warm, friendly and welcoming environment for your patients.
- A Holmes. 5/29/2018
I started going a few years ago and now my wife goes here too. We both enjoy the excellent service while being personable and professional at the same time.
- Greg Leary. 4/2/2018
Very knowledgeable, warm, and caring. Together with his wife, Wendy, Dr. Uppleger provided the most reassuring dental experience in the past 5 years. He and Wendy came up with the perfect solution at a lower price than I expected. I look forward to going back.
- Linda McCloud. 3/19/2018
Wow...no words will ever even come close to telling u how grateful I am for finding some of the best people left on this planet.....really....they have gone outta their way to help me more than I have space on here to tell you...so I'll try to sum them up.
From my 1st visit last year until the present I have been treated with nothing less than love & compassion on every level...from the desk to the dentist chair...this is Heaven sent as well as the care they give...i can guarantee if you visit this office u will begin to understand at what level of care & compassion I'm talking about...from the lead Dentist (Dr. Ron I call him) to his 2nd in command (his lovely daughter) Dr. Katherine, & every assistant their (including but not limited to )Mrs. Wendy & all the rest of the staff....beyond any & every expectation I ever had!! On top of being the best at what they do (which is everything) without question the best in the state I'd wager with anyone..i will never be able to repay them for everything they have done for this man & his family, however I would do anything for them in a heartbeat!!! not because they r the best at what they do.....(although that helps.. lol) but because I sincerely love & care about them as my true friends that r n the business of helping change lives...its about alot more than teeth....but when u find a combination of very skilled professionials & people that genuinely care from the heart, you never wanna let them go...& for my family & I....well, as long as we're on this planet God has given me more than my share of blessings...& within this office, is more blessings of love & every other wonderful qualities of Christ than anyone could ever imagine.
Needless to say, if u wanna find unbelievable people, who not only take pride in their profession, but also are way, way above the best of the best...on every level...u will never find these folks anywhere else...except here....so plz if u have any dental issues & want only the best of the best n every area of dentistry, as well as some of the best people u will ever meet anywhere..go & see them...& only then will u understand my gratitude for who they are to me....
thank u everyone at Uppleger Dental!!
I'm forever grateful,
I really do love u all,
- Douglas Day2. 2/20/2018
I just switched dentists after moving to a new area.. I had been going to my dentist my whole life so I was a little nervous. The Upplegers were amazing! The hygienist did a great job showing me around, describing what she was doing, and my clean feel so nice! Dr. Catherine was thorough with her exam. Everyone was incredibly friendly and I highly recommend!
- Abby Stewart. 2/16/2018
Highly recommended! Amazing staff, top notch service, and the complimentary warm cookies on your way out are awesome. Keep up the great work!

We have been going here for almost 10 years, nothing less than exceptional. Super friendly and I will always recommend them.
- Joe Jiovani. 9/18/2017
My 13-year-old son needed an emergency appointment yesterday, and we came to this office. Many offices are closed on Fridays (including our actual dentist), but Uppleger Dental opened its doors to us. Upon entry, we were treated like we had been coming for years. The office was clean and orderly, the everyone was warm and welcoming, over the phone and in person, and Dr. Uppleger (the dad) was very easy to work with -- patient-focused, kind, knowledgeable and easy to relate to. We aren't patients at this facility, but I'm seriously considering making the switch -- and it won't be just for the invite to share homemade cookies ;) We were quite pleased with the service we received from Uppleger Dental and are thankful they took the time to accommodate us.
- Elijah Rountree. 9/7/2017
Had a fantastic experience today at Uppleger. I get very nervous when I go to the dentist but everyone there helped make the experience super easy. The hygienist Rebecca was very professional & my cleaning went well. Highly recommend if you're looking for a new dentist or if you're someone who doesn't go very often.
- Ken Meservy. 9/4/2017
Been going here my whole life! Best service ever!
- Gisela Leija. 8/25/2017

- Eric George. 8/11/2017
I have never had a more positive experience at a dentist office. From the genuinely warm staff to the comforting techniques to make things painless, I was so relaxed I almost dozed off, literally. I have already begun to spread the word to friends and colleagues!
- Jackie Arnold. 7/23/2017
They are the best at what they do with the most friendly staff!!
- Shalyajit Jadhav. 6/19/2017
Always a great experience at Uppleger Dental!! My husband, myself and our two young daughters are all patients there and have always been treated very kindly. The staff is knowledgeable and professional and the office is very clean and high-tech. I'd highly recommend this practice to anyone!! :)
- carrie ramsay. 6/10/2017
From the time I walked in, I felt welcomed. My first visit and....(exhale) I found my new dental office! It has been almost a year since my last cleaning (shame on me). However, I left with a big smile feeling confident, not condemned.
- Tonya Dixson. 6/6/2017
Dr's and staff are excellent !!!!!
- Steve Kinzer. 5/26/2017
I could not imagine a more professional or friendlier dentist's office. The office itself is new, modern and comfortable, but the people make the real difference. Everything is very well explained. The father and daughter dental team works very well.
- Robert Cleland. 4/29/2017
Always a great experience at Uppleger Dental!
- Chrissy George. 4/10/2017
They are the best dental staff I know. I would recommend them to everyone.
- Jenica Topp. 3/24/2017
I have been going to Uppleger Dental since my first tooth came in 20+ years ago and don't plan on stopping anytime soon! I have always been in good hands with Dr. Ron and am happy that Dr. Katie is there now for me to keep going to for years to come. I trust their opinion/ recommendations on my Dental health. and recommend them to anyone who will listen! Shout out to Karen & Wendy as well!
- Jillian Brown. 3/19/2017
I've been going to Uppleger for about two years now, and have had nothing but wonderful experiences there. I'd been looking to get some extensive dental work done for quite some time, and I'm so glad I found Dr. Uppleger to work with! He's given me a brand new smile, and was wonderful to work with throughout the process. The entire staff treat like you family from the moment you walk in the door, which really helps calm any nerves associated with visiting the dentist's office! If you're looking for a new dentist, I couldn't recommend this office highly enough!
- Caitlin Demsky. 3/18/2017
Overall a wonderful experience, from the minute you walk into the door until you leave and are offered fresh chocolate chip cookies. I have been looking for a great dentist for years and finally found it!
- Samantha Noland. 3/11/2017
Uppleger Dental has the best, most caring dentists. They do excellent work and always look out for the patients best interests. I highly recommend them!!
- Shana Pitman. 2/10/2017
As soon as I walked into the door, I was immediately impressed with the modern decor and warm atmosphere. As I walked up to the counter I was greeted with a smile from the receptionist Karen (She always greets me by my name!). They had large exam rooms and friendly staff. I never felt nervous or uncomfortable at anytime. The hygienist was friendly and gentle, which I greatly appreciated. I finished with a visit from Doctor Uppleger, he was very professional and very kind. I have had a few procedures done by Doctor Uppleger, all were virtually painless. His wife is also a crucial part of the team, she always has a smile on her face and some kind words to share. Doctor Uppleger's daughter has recently joined the practice, she has a lovely personality and is very talented. She has made a great addition to the team! Every appointment I have had has been equally as great.
All in all this place is great! They really take excellent care of their patients and they take the "scary" out of going to the dentist. This is why I have been coming to see Dr. Uppleger for years! I always suggest to my friends and family that live near by to come here. Even when I lived in Chicago I made sure to commute home because I know what to expect from this talented team and I wouldn't trust my pearly whites to anyone else! This will be a lifelong relationship I am sure!
- Jamie Bruford. 0/4/2016
I have been going to Uppleger Dental for several years now. Every experience I have had there has been a very positive one. The entire staff is extremely friendly, professional and highly skilled. The office is comfortable, modern & well run, with minimal waiting both in the reception area & once you are in the room. Also, the staff is always up to date on the latest information & technology in order to make every visit as smooth & informative as possible.
- Erin Savage. 0/4/2016
I've been going to Uppleger Dental all of my life, and the dental service has been nothing short of excellent! The staff is careful, gentle and very friendly, and take the time to really know you as a patient. Wouldn't want my teeth cleaned and examined anywhere else!
- Samantha Uppleger. 0/4/2016
Amazing dentist!! They are very sweet and polite!!! Love going there!!
- Michele Solomich. 10/13/2015
Great office- family environment. My first appointment was amazing, as they walked me right back and didn't have to wait. Had a root canal done and couldn't believe how amazing I felt afterwards.
- Mike Solomich. 10/7/2015
We moved to Grand Rapids 15 years ago and still come back to Dr. Uppleger for all of our dental needs. The professional staff, and dental work is outstanding. From the teeth cleaning, to the implants I have had, I can truly say the work has been great. Dr. Uppleger had to pull several teeth, not only was there no pain during the procedure but I did not need any pain medication later that day or the following days! Each time I have had a procedure done it has been well explained to me, which makes me comfortable not only for the procedure, but the cost involved. No hidden surprises. Great Work Dr. Uppleger and Staff!! I highly recommend!
- Susan K. 6/11/2014
A dentist that my aunt, cousins and sisters have been seeing since the 80's. What is more impressive is he continues to have the state of the art equipment improve his skills as a top notch dentist.
- R Rue. 11/1/2013
I have been going to Dr. Uppleger's office since I was a child. I have never had an unpleasant experience. The office is comfortable and cozy, and the staff is very professional. I would recommend Dr. Uppleger to anyone looking for a great place to have dental work done.
- jay davis. 10/27/2013
I have been seeing Dr. Uppleger for over 20 years. His office is state of the art very clean and his staff is very professional. I have had major dental work performed by Dr. Uppleger do to a sports injury. He did an outstanding job, he is a perfectionist when it comes to dental work. I would highly recommend if you are looking for a great dentist Ron is the guy to see. He will talk through and explain everything he is doing and work with you to make sure you are getting the care you need. You will truly love the office and the experience you will get from the whole staff.
- Barry Torgow. 9/18/2013
I have had nothing but good experiences with Dr. Uppleger and his staff. This is a very high quality office with a very friendly and knowledgable staff. The office is sparkling clean and everything is state of the art.
