They got us in last-minute notice same day. Had movie glasses for my child to watch a movie. Dr. Scott Petersen is the best there is! The staff is super friendly.

I recently had Dr Petersen put veneers on some of my teeth! He did such an incredible job!! The minute I walked into his office, I was treated so kindly by all his staff members. Dr Petersen was very meticulous and detail oriented. I wanted the most natural smile I could get, and he did just that for me. He’s friendly and makes you feel so comfortable. I’m so glad I went with veneers instead of braces. It only took two appointments and they were done!!!!! Life’s too short to not love your smile!

- Kelly W.

The kindness by everyone one at Pinnacle is always such a joy. I’m nearing the end of my FastBraces (20 weeks) and have been surprised at how quickly my teeth have moved/straightened and how little pain or sensitivity I have experienced. I recommend this place to my friends.

- Sarah D.

I have continued to love this dental office. Everyone is wonderful! I have had my teeth cleaned, misc dental work, teeth whitening, and even a mouth guard for sleep apnea/snoring made. I appreciate how straightforward they are with cost and the choices you have in choosing the care that is right for you.

- Kelly S.

Great place for dental work. Staff is really friendly. I am always greeted and felt like I was glad to be there. Dr. Petersen is a great dentist and is honest and trustworthy!!

- Blair P.

Such a great staff and service you receive at Pinnacle dentistry. I’m a very anxious patient. They are always patient, kind and gentle. Dr Peterson is an awesome dentist that I will always take the extra drive to get my dental care done. Today I had 8 cavities filled using his new laser machine. It was AMAZING!!! I felt no pain and didn’t need any Novocain to numb me. The best part I relaxed and didn’t even grip the arm rest. This machine is a game changer in dentistry. If you need dental work this is THE place to go! This is where your children need to go.

- Tammy R.

I had broken a tooth and called for an appointment expecting a delay of a day or two. I was told to come immediately and was in the treatment room in less than 30 minutes. From phone call to departure with a repaired tooth was less than 90 minutes!

- Dale P.

Laser dentistry was great for my kids. Fixed all their cavities at once with no pain or shots and Dr Shakespear was awesome. Best dental experience they’ve ever had.

- Denise J.

Best dental office in Nephi. Great friendly staff and the Dentist Dr Scott Shakespear and Hygienist Leesa are Rock Stars! The office is beautiful, friendly and very clean. Highly recommend this dental office!

- Kohl B.

They always get me right in. Everyone there is always nice and helpful. Dr. Peterson is very professional and very experienced. I've always gone to him because I know that whatever needs to be done to my teeth, it will be done the first time. He always explains the procedure and then lets me know what to expect after having it done. The staff is very professional and his assistants are very knowledgeable and very helpful. They really do care about your smile.
