I’ve been going to Dr. Bruyere for thirty years. Due to health insurance changes over the years, I’ve seen three other Longview dentists. After the last one, I finally decided Dr. Bruyere is worth paying out of network when necessary...I’m not changing again. He’s simply the best. He goes above and beyond to take my fears into consideration and has never made me feel silly. His staff is top notch, too!

Wonderful staff and genuinely concerned for their clients. I am pregnant and after looking at a washed out filling, they opted to wait on it since it wasn't an emergency ( and avoid any risk to the baby, even if slim) when others may have fixed it just for the business. Loved their concern & attention to our needs over theirs!! Also, we are cash pay and they are great at helping us find ways to make our regular dental care more affordable.
