What I enjoy most about dentistry is the daily interactions with my patients. I really pride myself in involving the patient in all treatment planning decisions and helping them achieve the best outcome for their particular situation.

Outside of the office, I enjoy spending time with my family and my dog. I also enjoy playing hockey, tennis, golf, and going on annual fishing trips.

He did a great job of explaining what he was doing as I was getting a cavity filled, in a way that I could understand and that was calming

this week was my first time to see Steve kottke, the first was a routine cleaning and check up, the second was to replace a filling. he was clear about what he was doing at every step and the procedure was a breeze!

New to this doctor (dentist), so still determining how I feel about him. Don't like that he patted my shoulder several times (feels condescending). He should listen more carefully to my questions -- seemed to think I was asking about insurance costs when really I was asking about technical details of the treatment plan.

The visit was so quick, just down to business, and out.

Patient commented to me that everyone there was so friendly. He really appreciated how kind and friendly all the staff were from the minute he walked in the door. He said the hygienist waved and said, "hi and his name" as soon as she saw him. It made him feel really good.

now all of a sudden I have fracture lines and will need a crown. Dr. spent less than 5 minutes with me. He had the tech take photo of said tooth and supposed fracture lines can barely be seen. Not a good start with a new dentist. He seemed rushed and nonchalant!

first time meeting. I wish he'd have sat me upright to introduce himself and made a bit of small talk.

Dr. Kottke is by far the best dentist I have had. I was blown away when he called twice during my cap procedure. Not only that, I have been told for 3 years my pain was due to age and receding gums. The first time I met him he said I needed to cap that tooth. He was absolutely correct.

This is a new doctor for us, but has yet to introduce himself. Even when I asked for some more pre-procedure information (just a cavity fill), he was rather dismissive. I think he is likely a fine dentist, but needs to settle into establishing rapport/trust

This is the first time seeing this doctor, which is the only reason confidence isn't higher

This is the first time Imet the dentist, so no real comments. The dental hygienist was excellent.

The dental hygienist spent over half an hour and was very thorough and concentrated on not only cleaning my teeth but prevention of dental problems. Since her exam was very thorough and she reviewed it with the dentist, his checkup was fairly brief and he noted only one area of concern that had been missed. Other than the cleaning, only a fluroride treatment was warranted.
