I love how gentle and careful the dental hygienists are when cleaning my teeth. Likewise, Dr. Jaeger takes the stress out of going to the dentist.

My mother, who is 91 years old, has been going to Dr. Jaeger for years. She just recently broke a tooth and Dr. Jaeger has shown such kindness and compassion toward her throughout this stressful ordeal. He has called her at home after hours to check on her. This is my first experience at this office and every staff person has been so helpful and kind. Did I mention Mom is 91 and still has all her own teeth? A testament to the good care Dr. J. has given her over the years!

As always, I was treated like family at Hilldale Dental; from the front desk reception to the dentist chair. I’ve been a patient here since 1974 when Dr. Fred’s father managed affairs on Regent Street. I will happily refer others to Hilldale Dental for their teeth, gum and mouth care. The BEST ever.
– Steve S.
Went into dr. chair a bit before scheduled time which is good for me. Also, Dr. Jaeger was finished with me prior to the time I expected to be out of the chair, also very good. Work was excellent and he informed me of the problems he was finding.

Once again a GREAT job!! Dr Jaeger’s team is the BEST. I have been going to see him and his team for years and would not go to anyone else!!! First rate DDS!! OUTSTANDING service!!!!
– Lewie D.
Went to Hilldale dental for some work and as always it was a pleasant and pain free experience. Highly recommended to anyone searching for a new dental relationship!
– Brian M.
Adam was excellent. His technique was gentle but thorough; great disposition. He would make a great addition to your office.
– Earl W.
Let’s be honest, who likes going to the dentist? Not me! Even a cleaning will get me worked up before hitting the dental chair. I finally got up the nerve and made my appointment (I was over-due). Oh my gosh, Adam was terrific. He’s very gentle, yet I believe it’s the best cleaning I’ve ever had. He found a serious problem with a back molar that no other hygienist had found before. He gave instructions and the confidence to handle the problem. Bravo to Adam. Oh, and ladies…. he’s very cute~
– John D.
Great experience with your new assistant Adam. Excellent check up too!
– Katherine P.
Went in today to see Dr. Jaeger and staff to have a tooth extraction. I honestly did not feel a thing. He told me it was out and I hadn’t felt anything. I told him he was truly magical in his technique! What a great dentist and a truly great human being. Kimber and Sara have special qualities of their own…warm, kind, understanding, funny and I’m sure I will be able to say the same about Adam once I see him to have my teeth cleaned. Thank you from the bottom of my heart!
– Laurie R.
The exam was thorough, The repair was done quickly.
No pain, patient comfort was important to them.
– Elgin W.
Excellent service with excellent prices for a tooth removal, and everybody was very friendly. it was my second visit having a tooth pulled and they always made me feel like i was the most important person in the room with attention to detail and thoughtfullness to make sure i had no pain before the tooth was removed.

I’ve been travelling and had put off having my teeth cleaned and examined for much too long. The wonderful people at Hilldale Dental quickly took care of my neglected teeth in a professional, kind and friendly manner. Highly Recommended!

Dr. Jaeger and his staff: Sarah, Kimber and Adam, are outstanding! Not only are they kind people, their attention to detail and their dental expertise is incredible.

Dr. Jaeger and his staff not only provide high quality preventive/restorative dental care, they also provide cosmetic services that are amazing. My teenage son had a gap between his two front teeth. Dr. Jaeger and his team did a bonding procedure to fill the space, and his front teeth look natural and fantastic. My son is thrilled with the result!
I was so impressed with the quality of Dr. Jaeger’s work, that I have scheduled an upcoming appointment to have porcelain veneers placed on my severely ground down front teeth. I am looking forward to having it done!
Other services our family has used include having custom night guards made to reduce tooth damage from grinding, as well as getting custom mouth trays made used for daily whitening, which is done in the comfort of your own home.
I can’t emphasize enough how great Dr. Jaeger and his staff are. Their prices are fantastic as well. High quality dentistry, with reasonable prices… a win for all!

– Sarah N.
Very friendly and professional

I have been a very satisfied, well-cared for client of Dr. Jaeger’s (Bernard and Fred) since 1973. Thank you so much for your professionalism, kindness and courtesy. As a retired teacher, you always receive a five star, A plus rating from me. Kudos to you, and your encouragement for me to maintain proper dental hygiene, I have a very happy and healthy set of teeth and gums, which creates one giant smile on my face. You rock, Hilldale Dental. Extra kudos to Adam for your services today. I hope you are part of the Hilldale Dental family for many more years to come.
Just had another check up with Adam and Dr. Fred this past week; and was given the “A grade” for good oral hygiene. I owe it all to Hilldale Dental for their support, service and sweet attitude to encourage me to take care of my teeth and gums. Thanks, Adam and Dr. Fred, for your professionalism, courtesies and genuine care bestowed upon me. I have been going to Hilldale Dental since my college years, 1974 and never once considered changing service providers!
Another five star experience this morning with Kim and Adam at Hilldale Dental. Thank so much for your professionalism, kindness, courtesy and “touch of home”. You certainly know how to take care of people first, then their dental needs! Thanks, again.

I always enjoy the friendly atmosphere and knowledgeable staff at Hilldale Dental. New office is fantastic. Clean, relaxing and very nice equipment that gives lots of immediate visual information. I’ve been taking my sons to Dr. Fred for several years now and they love him. He’s GREAT with kids, and always teaches them something cool about health and wellness. Among the nicest guys, and dads, that I know!

I would recommend this dental practice to anyone. Staff is friendly and courteous. They got me in quickly for a minor dental emergency and DR. Jaeger did a fantastic job repairing my bridge. I feel very fortunate to have found this practice since moving to Madison.
– Charlene S.
We were vacationing in Madison, WI from overseas, and my five-year-old son had a dental emergency caused by a prior root canal. He was crying, screaming, and writhing in excruciating pain. It was early morning, and with no appointment and nowhere to go, we stopped at the first dental clinic we came across in the area–Hilldale Dental. They assured us everything would be fine, and fit our son in between theiir scheduled appointments. They fixed his tooth, and we continued our journey. Our son has had no problems since. They were just wonderful; I really can’t praise them enough. In fact, the doctor even called us later that same evening to check on our son’s progress. That says everything. How often does that happen these days
– Kyle R.
Fred and the staff at Hilldale Dental always do a great job with our whole family’s dental care. I’d recommend them to anyone.
Patient since 2008
– Neil R.
As far as dental visits, Dr. Jaeger and his staff are top shelf. One of the things I value is my time. I’m especially happy when others respect it. My hygienist was on time and there was no wait time in between the cleaning and dentist’s visit. My hygienist was knowledgeable and helpful in providing tips and solutions for problem areas.

I had a wonderful experience at Hilldale Dental. I’m very much terrified of the dentist, and will put off going way too long. This has now changed thank you to Dr Jaeger and his staff. No more fear and apprehension. Now I can get my smile back without fear.

I am a big guy with bad arthritis, Dr. Jaeger and his super friendly and caring staff made sure I was comfortable and had a great experience. We have been going to Hilldale Dental now for over a decade and the equipment and techniques used are cutting edge. I offer my top recommendation to anyone that needs an awesome gentle dentist who keeps his patient’s comfort in mind.

Dr. Jaeger and the staff at Hilldale Dental make going to the dentist an event to look forward to. The office is warm and welcoming. Most important to me, Dr. Jaeger and the staff go out of their way to make me feel comfortable, to explain the procedures and patiently answer all my questions. I have no doubt I’m receiving quality dental care. I am so glad I found Dr. Jaeger and Hilldale Dental and recommend them to all my friends.

Wonderful job by the new dental hygienist. He was very careful and pleasant.
– Faith F.
Came in on Wed. with chipped tooth and another where the filling had fallen out, and the latter was very sore and was giving me pain. One tooth was pulled and the other repaired and I came out of the office very satisfied with the work done especially with the short time frame.
I rate my experience as excellent.
– Carol W.
This is going on my (and my husband’s) second year with the clinic.
Very professional and thorough services, but still a friendly office.
I absolutely HATE getting my teeth worked on or cleaned but I know I have to do it. Everyone is understanding and incredibly patient and answers my numerous questions on dental work.
The cleanings are very comfortable.
It’s one less stressor to grind my teeth over. 🙂
– Constance W.
On a routine cleaning, the new hygienist, Adam did an excellent job. Thorough and painless. As Adam said, he does the cleaning process the way he would want his own teeth cleaned. Thank you.
I’ve received excellent dental care from Hilldale Dental for decades now, going back to the days of Dr Bernard Jaeger, even before Dr Fred Jaeger. Thank you.
– David G.
Dental hygienist Adam cleaned my teeth at my last appointment. He was professional, thorough and gentle. I apologized for the stains on my teeth caused by my frequent berry eating. Adam told me: it’s my job to remove the stains, keep eating berries. His positive, service-oriented attitude was refreshing. —

Dr Jaeger and his staff are terrific! Office is accessible to all. Highest recommendation.
– Laurie S.
Adam is a very pleasant and friendly dental hygienist. He explains how he is going to clean your teeth before he begins so you know what to expect. He also checks in with you a few times to see if you are doing okay. Dr. Jaeger and the staff have a great sense of humor and really make you feel at ease.

Dr Jeager is a caring dentist and has a little sense of humor too. He takes his time and gives all options. I especially like that I can get in quickly too. The best of the best.
– Karen R.
Dr Jaeger is highly competent and incredibly polite. I would not have hangups about going to the dentist if I’d had him as a child. Couldn’t recommend highly enough.
– Elizabeth A.
Absolutely the best dental experience I’ve ever had! Before I saw Dr. Jaeger I cringed at the thought of seeing the dentist, but the entire staff at the office completely changed that. If you’re looking for a pain free and comfortable experience this is the place to go!
