Top Rated Local® is pleased to announce that Fremont Dental Group is an award winner for dentists in 2019.

If you are looking for a dentist that will take care of you with compassion and consistency, look no further than this award-winning company!

Fremont Dental Group has received many overwhelmingly positive reviews across five different verified sites with an average rating of 4.89 stars, earning them an impressive Rating Score™ of 98.87 and two 2019 Top Rated Local awards for ranking as one of the top 15 businesses and one of the top three dentists in Nebraska!

Here’s just one of their many five-star reviews:

“Everyone is always so friendly! The service is professional, and I always feel like people are truly interested in me as a person and not just a patient!!” – D.S.

It is because of excellent reviews like this that Fremont Dental Group is now able to call themselves a Top Rated Local award winner!

Not Your Average Dentist

We were excited to learn all about how Fremont Dental Group has been able to build such an impressive reputation, so we sat down with the Office Coordinator, Alex Headid.

The first thing we wanted to know was what it is that makes Fremont Dental Group stand apart from their competitors. Alex told us that this practice strives to go above and beyond to make sure their patients have the best possible experience. This starts with the reliability of their staff, like Dr. McCarthy, who has been in the area for over 19 years! They value their clients’ time, so they use a local lab that is owned by one of their doctors; they always accept new patients; they do in-office crowns, and they are an Invisalign® provider! Alex also told us that it is important that their staff are all constantly continuing their education and keeping up with new training in the field.

We talked a bit about the business mission at Fremont Dental Group, which Alex described as:

“Our ultimate goal is to make our patients happy and comfortable. We have a staff meeting every month where we all discuss what we can do to make things better. What do our patients enjoy? What changes can we make to please our patients more?”

Building Success Through Word of Mouth

Fremont Dental Group has certainly built an impressive reputation for themselves, so we were excited to hear about some of the ways they have marketed and grown their business. Alex told us that they have a half-page ad in the local phonebook, and they also advertise in the local school yearbooks and activity guides, but that the biggest way they get new business is word of mouth. All loyal customers who send a new patient their way are sent a personal thank you letter and a Starbucks gift card.

There are many businesses out there that are looking to build as impressive a reputation as Fremont Dental Group has managed to. We asked if Alex could share any expert advice with these companies. Here’s what she had to say:

“The best thing to do is to satisfy your customers. Treat them the way you want to be treated!”


Congratulations to Fremont Dental Group for being a 2019 Top Rated Local award winner, and special thanks to Alex for taking the time to speak with us!
