  • "I have been a patient for nearly 40 years, seeing Dr. Filson for everything from routine exams through veneers. During all that time I have been thoroughly pleased with the care that Dr. Filson and his entire staff have given me."- Jack

  • "Dr. Bruce Filson has been my dentist for the last thirty years, and my teeth are in great shape! Not only is his dentistry superb, but his manner is kind and gentle -- I have never felt pain or discomfort while in his care. I have recommended him to many friends and acquaintances, and I urge everyone to see him for the excellent services he provides." Sincerely,Win

  • "I got my smile back today! Thank you Dr. Hei for your masterful work I just can't stop smiling. I drive from Red Wing to see Dr Hei, he never judged me or made me feel ashamed of my genetically weak teeth and I have my confidence back. I highly recommend Filson, especially my family. I have found my forever dentist!" - Jeannine
