  • Dentist and hygienist are great. The older receptionist is just about as rude as it gets though. The previous lady was wonderful.

  • Dr. Specht is an angel! The entire staff is incredible. Beautiful office, made things as easy and painless as possible, quick and courteous service, and even surprised me with a sizeable discount at the end. Absolutely amazing. I can not recommend this place enough.

  • Wonderful staff. I have anxiety about my front teeth due to a childhood accident and am going through the process of having the crowns replaced, both CJ and the rest of the staff have been so kind and calming and I have to say I'm super excited to see the final results. Already I'm happy just with the temporary crowns.

  • Patient has Alzheimer's disease and they explained every step to him. Made him feel at ease. Took him in an emergency situation and did a wonderful job. Would recommend to anyone to go here for dental needs.

  • So thankful for the Dentist there! At my routine check-up, she discovered my bite was off and corrected my tooth! I'm not biting that cheek anymore. THANK YOU

  • I find the ladies to be very professional, knowledgeable, and even quite charming. They utilize up to date equipment, seem to be very current in all procedural matters and create a pleasant atmosphere while conducting some very unpleasant work.

  • Amazing place! I get excited to go to the dentist now because of how great the ladies are here. Uber efficient, professional, and caring! The pretty atmospheres of both the Nashwalk and Virginia offices are nice touches, too. It’s like going to a spa, but for your teeth!

  • I bring my kids here and have never been disappointed! They're all amazing and have done a wonderful job with my kids. CJ will tell you strait up what needs to be done, why it needs to be done, and she doesn't believe in unnecessary treatment. Everyone there definitely puts the patient first, and that makes a big difference!

  • So, let me start by saying that I haven’t been to the dentist in 4 years, so I was a bit nervous. But the ladies that work here are so wonderful and made me feel at ease! I obviously had a lot of build up from 4 years and my hygienist, Theresa, was so friendly and detail oriented she got my teeth scraped clean in short order. The Dentist was also very friendly, she seemed to have a personal connection with all her patients, and also a great laugh! When I pulled up to the store front, I was a bit nervous about what I had gotten myself into, because curb appearance makes the office look a little sketchy (to say it nicely). However, after walking in, the inside is very well remodeled, very clean, and open. I will be returning to this office.

    Marilyn G.

  • The staff here is absolutely wonderful. I typically HATE going to the dentist after a long string of rude/condescending visits at past dental offices growing up, but everyone at Up North Dental has changed my tune. I came in as a new patient, I was able to get in very quickly and they did a wonderful job of making sure everything was covered by my insurance. The office itself is very cozy and inviting and everyone is very friendly and professional. Would definitely recommend to anyone!

  • Five stars! So great to have to have a top notch dental clinic so close to home. The waiting area is very cozy, the coffee's always on, and you're always greeted with a smile. I've had cleanings, filling replacements, a crown and a root canal performed here. I have been well taken care of and very pleased with the services performed. Dr. CJ Specht and her staff provide quality care and follow up and really do an excellent job!

  • C.J. Has an awesome dental office going. I'm new to her new practice, and Shannon got me in the next day. I am in need of some immediate work, an am scheduled within a week of my initial visit! I can't say enough good things about C.J. Anyone in need of dental work on the Iron Range should give her a try! Her staff is great to deal with, so I don't understand the negative posts. Five star all the way!

  • Love love love this dental office. It is so inviting as you first walk in. The receptionist, Shannon, greets you promptly with a wonderful smile on her face. She is so accomodating and friendly. Then the dentist C.J. is awesome. She is very good at her job with personality plus. Her hygentists and assistants always have done spectacular work as well. My husband and I switched to Up North dental when our dentist retired and we could not be more pleased.

  • I love the open layout of the office. It is super clean and comfortable. Shannon, the receptionist, was very polite and patiently answered all my questions. Dr. CJ and her staff in back work together like a well oiled machine.

  • Clean, professional, and wonderful to work with! I love the play area for children - they took the time to work with my 2 year old and made sure her experience was great.

  • Dr. Specht us an amazing dentist. The waiting area is clean comfortable and the staff is friendly and knowledgeable. They can get you in in the event of an emergency for emergency treatment. My husband got in short notice for an abscess and was treated that day, very happy with his experience. He was also called personally to be asked how he was feeling after a root canal by the dentist herself.

    I have never had a bad experience in all the years I have seen CJ. All of my kids love her and her staff as well as my husband. I reccomend this office often.
